Unsung heroes in the county’s past

-A A +A
By Brad Bowman

I
 have recently started on another bit of history in the county that continues to interest me: the Civil War. The farther I look into the history of the county the more intriguing history I find.
In last week’s edition, I wrote about Capt. I. N. Johnston of Pleasureville. Johnston was one of the officers who was instrumental in carrying out the great escape from Libby Prison. More than 100 people escaped through a tunnel dug in the company of rats that regularly climbed over the freedom seekers as they worked in shifts digging.
