Story County Civil War Sesquicentennial Program - June 14, 2013
June 14, 2013, Story County hosted a program to pay tribute to those who fought and died in the Civil War. Over 200 hundred were in attendance to view the new monument by our canon, explaining it's significance to Story County. Governor Terry Branstad, Col. Todd Jacobus, and Abe Lincoln spoke at the program. Music, bagpipes and song were enjoyed by the audience. 150 years since the Civil War sparked the initiative for Gretchen Triplett to organize this program. Many thanks to her and the volunteers who put it together!
