This is the number of Civil War Veterans I now have in my Manning Veterans database which can be found linked on this web page

For several decades I had around 70 names, but recently Connie Petersen, who along with Ann (Voge), has found around 30 more names...Connie found a website that has post Civil War documentation cards that listed the McPherson Post #33, which verified they lived in/near Manning at one time.

I also had a number of names with no or very little information, and I wasn't 100% sure with the spellings of the names or if they were even Veterans, since my sources over the decades were vague and loose on facts.

I figured there were other Civil War Veterans who lived in Manning and moved on, but I never dreamed Manning had this many Civil War Veterans.

As I always write about, one of the main reasons why so many people came to/through Manning is because of the 3 railroads we had between 1880 - the late 1930s.

I can't emphasize enough the importance of our current Burlington Northern (formerly the Milwaukee) RR we have...a railroad service offers so much to a community, much of which is never fully understood or appreciated.

Below is the list of names which I think needs as much exposure as possible - even though they are all linked above.
If you have any pictures and/or information for any of these Civil War Veterans or any Manning Veteran - Please e-mail me.

Now please realize that there will be some errors under the various links of these Civil War Veterans...the information I have linked is only as accurate as the source material we find, such as the documentation cards found. I tried to compare information from obituaries I have for some of the Veterans, and also other information I have in my database...but no matter how hard I try, there will be errors in the database and eventually what is included in the book.
BUT it is very important to find and archive and publish this information in a Manning book so those Veterans have a "home" for their service.
You can find a lot of information on the Internet but there is no/little connection for those Manning Veterans and what is VERY different/unique about my Manning Historical Web Page Database.

I have well over 1000 Manning connected Veterans who I want to feature/honor in a two-volume Manning Veterans' history book, and now I have even more Civil War names...
So if you are a Manning connected Veteran and want to be included with these other amazing Manning Veterans - PLEASE e-mail me so we can work on your military story and get it added to the Manning Veterans' database and in the book.
