LDN -- Top Stories

On Saturday afternoon guests enjoyed looking at pieces from the Terry Lowe collection pertaining to Lowe's great-great-great Uncle Thaddeus Lowe, the Civil War Balloon Corps, and Abraham Lincoln. The display was set up as part of a presentation by the Terry Lowe about his ancestor and the history of balloon usage during the Civil War for the purpose of spying on Confederate troops. The program held at the Johnston Center at Lincoln College was hosted by the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society.
