History Program-The Civil War and Central Wisconsin

Did you know that this year marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War? Join us as the Neenah Historical Society and the Neenah Public Library feature local historian, Kim Heltemes, when he presents "The Civil War and Central Wisconsin," on Thursday, March 19th, at 7 pm. Much has been written and presented on the Civil War, but what about our local story? What role did our citizens play in this historic conflict? Were citizens in favor of the war? What role did our local soldiers play in the famous battle at Gettysburg? Bringing the Civil War story home to our community will be Mr. Heltemes' goal as he presents this unique program.
