morning the Civil War statue committee wrote the final chapter in
their book of Logan County history when they placed a simple marker
at the burial site of the old Civil War soldier statue in Postville
co-chairs JoAnne Marlin and Paul Gleason (pictured at left), the
placing of the Civil War-era-style stone where the pieces of the old
soldier are buried marks the completion of their job, and the
committee will now disband.
When the 1869 statue fell to the ground in a
winter storm in December of 2008, it was a heartbreaking moment for
many in Logan County. The statue had stood as a tribute to the
soldiers of Logan County who lost their lives during the Civil War.
