The fallen: 'Bringing Michigan back to them'
This past weekend, a group from Michigan brought a handful of hom to the final resting place of 175 fallen soldiers at Gettysburg, Pa. Historian Bruce Butgereit and other members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War traveled for the 150-year remembrance of President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address on Nov. 19, 1863. Soil from all over Michigan was collected for the remembrance. • Article
