More “veterans of the late unpleasantness” or better known today as the Civil WarIn case you haven’t caught my blog posts these past couple days I’m transcribing a local GAR Roster from 1908. I found the Roster in the papers of the Daughters of Union Veterans 1861-1865 Lizabeth A. Turner, Tent 23, of which I’m a member. The GAR held their encampment in Lima, Ohio in 1908. I’m guessing that would be the reason for printing this roster.
So let’s take a look at some of the guys on the roster from G to L:

When I’m through transcribing the entire Roster I’m going to tally the regiments and see which ones had the most veterans who were members of this post. Not exactly scientific but a representation of the community at the time. Already by far the 81st OVI has the most veterans. I was aware that the 81st was the regiment of this area but didn’t realize how big. The 81st OVI deserves some big time research as I look into my local Civil War history!
