It's time for another Saturday Spotlight! Donations to the collections of the Clark County Historical Society come to us on a nearly daily basis, so we'd like to give you a peek at some of the cool new things we receive. #SaturdaySpotlight
Last week we received this wonderful illustrated book on the Military History of Ohio from 1886 that includes an alphabetical listing of all Clark Countians who served in the Civil War, burial information about those killed in service and of local veterans who had died through 1886, histories of local regiments in the Civil War, general histories about those in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, officer lists, and lists of members in all the local G.A.R. posts. This is an amazing resource for researchers!
We know that this will be especially useful for those looking for Civil War ancestors. While we have the rosters of the Civil War, they are all listed by regiment, therefore you need to know where they served to find them. A search online might turn up quite a few people with the same name. We have scanned the relevant local pages from the book and volunteers will be working to prepare the edited pages to share soon! ... See MoreSee Less
