Meet the veterans of the past

For the last few years, local historian Michael Huston has led the charge to identify photos of Iowans serving in the Civil War, with the help from 2,100 of his closest Facebook friends. The group he created has shared more than 2,500 historic images, which he believes is the largest digital photo collection of Iowa’s Civil War soldiers.

On March 3, he’ll lead a free event at Grundy County Heritage Museum in Morrison. Guests can take part in a discussion about local Civil War history and share stories from their own families. And if you have any photos of your ancestors, Huston will be available to create archival scans of them.
