Just a quick entry this time… a few weeks ago one of the Mindfield designers brought in the photo below. It is a picture of her great great great grandparents. He was a veteran of the Civil War and a member of the Grand Army of the Republic. Note the pins they are both wearing.
His pin is similar to the logo laid out in tile on the lobby floor of the G.A.R. building. Hers is for a Ladies Aid group which supported the G.A.R. We’re hoping to put more faces to the words “Civil War veteran” as we build out the memorial at the building. The photos of John and Mary Pool are just a few of them.
Work continues on on Grand River and Cass…look for updates soon on the stonework and roofing.
