Jasper County Public Library
This project makes accessible historically significant documents that were the property of Rensselaer resident Robert Huston Milroy who formed and led the volunteer G company of the 9th Regiment of the Indiana Infantry. He later reached the rank of Major General, was known as the "Grey Eagle of the Army," served the Union meritoriously and provided acclaim and notoriety to Jasper County. His papers, letters, photographs, and memorabilia are invaluable in their accounts of the Civil War and his part in that war. Teacher resources and more information about the this digitization project are available at the Jasper County Public Library website.
This collection was created in part by funding from a grant from the Indiana State Library made possible by the Library Services and Technology Act and administered by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
