The Atwater Area Historical Society had two illustrious visitors stop by earlier this month. Wayne Jorgenson, a historian who has done extensive research on Minnesota soldiers who served during the Civil War, and Steve Osman, the Director of the Fort Ripley Military Museum, stopped by to look at the Peter Hall materials housed in the museum. They spent about 2 hours looking at the various artifacts, news clippings, and photos and were very impressed with what they saw. They both expressed their amazement at how generous the Hall family was in donating so much great material and how pleased they were that the material was available to the general public. They pointed out that some of the artifacts in the museum were one of a kind, which certainly pleased the members of the Historical Society board who were there.
