Join the St. Clair Museum staff on Thursday, May 21 at 7 PM as we look back 150 years to the end of the Civil War and learn about many local men who fought in it. Local Historian Charles Homberg will detail the lives of two generals, officers, privates and one sailor who took part in this terrible time in American history. Some spent time in southern prisoner of war camps. Some were wounded. Some never came home. All had interesting stories to tell.
After the war, the survivors returned home to families, farms, or businesses and helped build modern St. Clair and the State of Michigan. Join us in remembering the sacrifices our Civil War veterans made.
