Appleton Post-Crescent, April 21, 1962
A bittersweet account of the Civil War as provided by Mr. Ralph Moon's grandfather in his letters, his initial enthusiasm eventually tempered by the horrors of war. A most interesting presentation to the Menasha Historical Society, I'm sure.
A side note...the "Wigwam" that was mentioned was a convention center and meeting hall that served as the site of the 1860 Republican National Convention. It was located in Chicago at Lake Street and Market (later Wacker Drive) near the Chicago River.
