Author will share Civil War stories


Charlotte Shover had a list of the battles her great grandfather August Temme faught in during the Civil War. It wasn’t much, but it was just enough to get the Rosemount woman started on an incredible journey.

Over a five year period, Shover set out to learn how her grandfather lived and where his regiment was during each of the battles on the list. Augustus R. Temme served with the 70th New York Volunteer Infantry.
