Civil War walking tour of Lake Forest Cemetery
Jeanette Weiden, the local history librarian at Loutit District Library; and Jane Ladley, curator services director for the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, led a nearly two-hour walk highlighting the Civil War veterans buried at the Lake Forest Cemetery on Wednesday morning.
Weiden said there are about 110 Civil War soldiers buried at the Grand Haven cemetery, and the walk highlighted 25 of them. She and Ladley discussed well-known names such as Akeley, Boyden and Ferry, and many lesser-known men who served during the War Between the States.
They will give a second walking tour at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 10.
