Bowling Green in Wood County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Wood County In The Civil War
Most local families had a member in the Union military, and their absence was a severe hardship for the farm-based community. Women, children, and the elderly struggled to maintain agricultural production in addition to providing other support for the Union's cause. Most notably, each township organized a committee that recruited volunteers for the Union Army, supported soldiers' families, and sponsored patriotic meetings.
This plaque commemorates the efforts of Wood County's soldiers, sailors, and civilians whose efforts helped preserve the United States as one nation.
Dedicated April 2015 by the
Wood County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee
and the Wood County Commissioners
