FRANK SANDAGE, Guest Columnist
My new book “Civil War Soldiers of Perry County” will be released to the public July 4.
The book has the names, addresses, ranks, times of service and many other details not published before in the county. Our recent Memorial Day services honored 136 men who died in the service between 1900 and 2010. My book will give the names of 900 men and 183 who perished in the struggle to save the Union and to free slaves.
It is my pleasure to present a few facts about our American Civil War.
