Michigan’s Iron Brigade with Michael McCaffery
September 18, 2024 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Michael Mccaffery, Director of the Dearborn Heights libraries, recently hosted a program on the Michigan 24th at his library and other local Civil War roundtables. His focus during the program was the 24th’s ties to the community, including a state historical site at which some Civil War veterans were interred. The upcoming presentation will focus on the genesis of the Michigan 24th, why it was unique, and how the unit came to be one of the most decorated units in the Civil War.
