The Whitley County Historical Society’s Civil War campers honored fallen Civil War soldiers in front of the memorial on the Whitley County Courthouse Square Thursday afternoon.

Members of the 5th Annual Civil War Camp placed American flags in the ground in front of the memorial, in honor of the 10 new names to be added to the stone.

The memorial was dedicated in 1897 and has more than 300 names of men that were mustered into the war from Whitley County or lived in the area after the war.

See Page A3 of the June 14 issue of The Post and Mail for more photos and the list of names to be added to the memorial.
