Citizen Soldiers: One Family’s Legacy

Join us at the Stearns History Museum at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, Aug. 13, for the August Breakfast Club. This will be a special Breakfast Club, outdoors under a tent on the plaza at the Museum. Local historian Bill Morgan will be sharing the military stories of his ancestors through several different wars.

Bill’s presentation traces events surrounding the war experiences of members of his family who fought in America’s wars - the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. His grandfather was wounded during the Civil War; his great-grandfather died at Bull Run; and a great-uncle helped turn the tide during the third day at Gettysburg. Later stories have to do with a cousin who died on Iwo Jima and the death of his nephew in Vietnam.

Free for members, $7 for non-members; 235 33rd Ave. S., St. Cloud; www.stearns-museum.org/breakfast-club.
