Sunday, the Louisa County Historical Museum will host a day dedicated to the Civil War. The day starts at 10am, when the 3rd Iowa Calvary, Company M begins setting up camp outside the museum in Wapello. There will be a program at one, where Ed Bayne and Tom Woodruff will talk about the six Littleton Brothers, Louisa County natives who lost their lives during the war.

Norma McCormac, Louisa County Historical Society Board Member, says there will also be Civil War era music, a fashion show featuring clothing from the time period, and a quilt show, with some of the pieces dating back to the war.
