Searching for Descendants of African America Civil War Soldiers

 In the fall of 2012, the City of Cincinnati asked Library's Genealogy & Local History Department to track down present-day descendants of seven African American Civil War soldiers buried in unmarked graves in Wesleyan Cemetery in order to honor the deceased veterans with tombstones. Join the panel discussion at the Main Library with the Rev. Mendle Adams of the Masonic lodge Brothers Memorial Project, librarians, and researcher Dr. John Bryant.
