Wanted: Laurel Civil War Soldiers

Judy Krahenbuhl is collecting the names of all Civil War soldiers, sailors, or other military personnel connected with Laurel County. They might have been born here, enlisted here, lived here before or after the War, died here, and/or are buried here. It doesn’t matter if they were Union, Confederate, or Home Guards.
