Wellington in the Civil War
With April being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, residents have the opportunity to look at historic war photographs featuring Wellington residents of that era.
Al Leiby, who has digitized hundreds of photographs for the Spirit of ‘76 Museum has also compiled 118 Civil War photographs showing Wellington residents, which are available for viewing at the museum.
According to Leiby, after Town Hall was built in 1885, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) paid to have their meetings held there. The GAR consisted of Union Army veterans who had served during the Civil War.
