Civil War pre-sesqui in NW Indiana

If you just can't wait for the outbreak of the 150th anniversaries of the Civil War, c'mon over to La Porte County, where the historical society has an encampment and "Civil War Ball" June 27, songs of the war August 1, and a talk August 8 on La Porte County Civil War veterans (including two Confederates) by county historian Fern Eddy Schultz. My information comes from the society's June "Oldletter," but information on the first two events is on the website. If you come to visit their research library, bear in mind they're closed Sunday-Monday and charge a small admission fee.
