Arbor Day 


What are you going to plant to celebrate Arbor Day? Thinking it

might be more of a pruning and transplanting day at the

Western Wilhelm Outpost.

This was a few years ago!

Saturday the members of the Otoe County Genealogical Society

met in Nebraska City at the Keeping Room for lunch (what an

interesting place!). It was a short menu but the food was delicious.

Members held a short business meeting at Morton James Library

and finalized their work day in May.

Then it was on to the Civil War/GAR Hall. If you haven't been lately,

they've added new display areas with lots of new items.

Our guide, Tim Engel, was an

added bonus: so knowledgeable and helpful in finding answers to

our questions. Did you know Unadilla had a GAR post? It was

called Chickamauga and it's last surviving member, Joseph

Keach died in 1932. Keach served in the 173rd Ohio Infantry,

Co. H, and the 4th Ohio Cavalry.

Vistors can actually hold a Civil War rifle and it's amazing how

heavy it is. Starting this weekend they will be open Friday,

Saturday, and Sunday, from noon until 4, admission $3.
