Public is invited to civil war regiments gathering


To the editor:

Mark Britton and I will be hosting a Q&A on two civil war regiments that had many men from the surrounding area in them. The 99th O.V.I. and the 118th O.V.I. (Ohio volunteer infantry) both formed at Camp Lima in the late summer of 1862.

We will be at the Delphos Canal Museum, 241 N. Main St., Delphos, Ohio on Saturday, Sept. 16, from noon — on.

Men from your area served in both regiments. We will have artifacts, diaries, photos and letters from the units. We would like to meet anyone who is a descendant of, or is interested in, these units. They are encouraged to bring their information or artifacts to show.

Thank you,

Mike Klinger
