We in Henry County, Iowa are doing projects to commemorate the Civil War 150 years later. I have been asked to write about what Quakers at Salem, Iowa would have been doing during the Civil War. My first thought was they pretty much went about everyday living.
Did Women have project they were doing? Did some Salem Quaker men go ahead and fight? I will begin by reading the minutes both women's and men's for that time period, Salem and Cedar Creek. Underground Railroad should be pretty much over by then.
Some on the list have roots from SE Iowa Quakers do you have any stories about what your families may have done or insights into what they might have been doing? I know what they did in areas near fighting, but not much related to the war happened here. Did anyone have a relative that came home from fighting either confederate or union and the Salem community rejected them? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
This pertains to Quakers in Tippecanoe, Jackson and Salem townships Henry County and northern Lee County
