Just added to local collection

We have just added Effie Leatherman’s “Midlin Times” to our local history collection. This book is a look at Nelson Slater Gardner, Civil War’s unsung hero. Not only is this a look at the life of Nelson Gardner but the Wisconsin Co. A 19th Infantry Division during the Civil War. The Division was made up of Reedsburg citizens. We have in our historic photographic collection, tintype photos of each member of the group. These photos are also available online at:
Family histories are one of America’s favorite and most enriching hobbies. Our local history room has a large collection of family histories and area histories. We would certainly welcome your family history or materials related to Reedsburg and Sauk County area.
