Civil War ‘ghosts’ come alive



April 18, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Jeff Kluever gave a haunting view of the Civil War at Tuesday evening’s spring meeting of the Allen County Historical Society.

The ACHS executive director used video clips and real artifacts from the war to illustrate often personal views of hostilities. 

Artifacts included an Atlanta newspaper printed on the back side of wallpaper, produced during Gen. Sherman’s siege in late 1864, along with notes written by slaves and letters penned by soldiers. Some of what he displayed came from Allen Countians, including several pieces from Nimrod Hankins, an Iolan.
