Last Wednesday evening the Lions Club hosted speaker Kevin Yaney and his Civil War history lesson. Kevin spoke in great detail about the war and its connection to Indiana. He detailed how cotton was a great financial factor to the country, and in 1860 was largest of US exports. He spoke on the many sacrifices of people and the states in the war, including Indiana. A Civil War is something the country never wants to see again. Kevin does marketing consulting, and has written books on the war. He can be seen at www.yaney.net.
