Michigan Monuments

When America fought its bloodiest war, Michigan sent over 90,000 troops. The First Michigan was the first western regiment to respond to Abraham Lincoln’s call for troops, leading to his famous exclamation “Thank God for Michigan!” History buffs will be delighted with Michigan Civil War Landmarks by David Ingall & Karin Risko. With over 70 monuments in the lower peninsula alone, there is probably one close enough to visit this week. If you are the least bit curious about Michigan’s role in the War Between the States take a look at this book soon! DB
