Bartholomew County Society Offers War of 1812 Calendar

The Bartholomew County Genealogical Society in Columbus is commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 by selling a 2012 calendar commemorating Bartholomew County's War of 1812 veterans. The calendar is $12, with an additional $3 if the order is shipped (local residents can pick up their order). The proceeds from the calendar will be used to provide War of 1812 markers for these veterans and if funding permits, to restore some of their gravestones.

To order a calendar, visit their website, send an e-mail to bcgs47202@yahoo.com, or call (812) 372-4033. Check and order information may also be sent directly to:

Bartholomew County Genealogical Society
P.O. Box 2455
Columbus, IN 47202

If you know of a War of 1812 veteran that has links to Bartholomew County, please contact the society so that they may also be honored.
