  • When people think of the American Civil War, they think of places in Tennessee, Virginia, or Pennsylvania. When America faced its greatest internal crisis, Michigan answered the call with over ninety thousand troops. Dave Ingall, Michigan Civil War historian and tour guide, will share with us the many sites connected to the Civil War in Michigan including monuments, markers, gravesites, buildings, forts, museum exhibits and many fascinating stories about Michiganders in the Underground Railroad and the Civil War. We will also learn about some famous confederates who had Michigan ties. Dave along with Karin Risko, founder of Hometown History Tours, chronicle these important Civil War landmarks in their new book "Michigan Civil War Landmarks" which will be available for purchase.
