Howard County Civil War

This collection is a partnership between the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library and The Howard County Historical Society. Howard County has a rich history of community military involvement in the Civil War. Regiments were raised, patriotism was high and the community rallied around the boys. Several prominent members of the community stepped up to raise the requested number of enlistments. Records show that in the 16-35 age range, Howard County led the state in percentage of recruits to the general population. These officers and enlisted men left proof of their experiences in the form of enlistment records, pension records, muster rolls, letters, etc. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library.
