Some Came Marching Home Again, Johnson County Illinois Went to War

1861-1865 Saturday February 12, 2022 John A. Logan College Room

The Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois invites the membership and general public to attend this presentation by Ed and Diane Annable. Notable authors of several books focused on Johnson and Union counties.The Civil War of 1861-1865 was one of the most devastating events that ever occurred in our great country. The North saw it as a “Rebellion,” while the South saw it as a second war of Independence similar to the American Revolution. Two legitimately based ideas, but who was right? Hindsight is
the only gauge with which we have to measure the question of who was right and who was wrong? This presentation will involve only those events and occurrences that affected the people and soldiers of Johnson County. Join us Saturday February 12th on the campus of John A. Logan College. Due to COVID restriction please use parking lot D for parking. Use the Handcock Conference Center, Building F entrance, rooms F118 & F119. The presentation will begin at 10:00AM.
The COVID guidelines for the college require a mask and a minimum distance of three (3) feet between individuals. Your compliance is requested with this policy.
