Description

This volume of "Personal War Sketches" was presented to the Frank A. Haskell Post No. 146 of the Grand Army of the Republic in 1890 by ex-Governor James T. Lewis of Columbus, Wisconsin. When the Columbus G.A.R. Post was disbanded in 1924, the Columbus American Legion Post inherited the volume, then placed it on long-term loan to the Columbus Public Library in 1973. The album contains short biographies of Civil War veterans residing in Columbus as well as several loose documents related to G.A.R. proceedings. The album is presented here in four parts along with a transcript of the handwritten text and a chart of Civil War registrations for Columbus, Wisconsin in June 1863. Photographed and transcribed by Bob and Mary Jane Ferrett, January 2013.
