People age 50 and older are invited to the monthly Senior Monday Carry-in Luncheon on Nov. 4 at Salamonie Interpretive Center in Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area, Andrews.
After the noon meal, Fort Wayne lawyer and amateur historian Steve Williams will speak about L.P. Milligan, a Huntington lawyer who was sentenced to hang for subversive activity during the Civil War. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the conviction, establishing a precedent that continues to protect civil liberties. Williams will look at Milligan’s plots and misdeeds— considered by many to be treason—that occurred during the war, much of it in Huntington County.
Attendees should bring table service, a prepared dish to share and $1 donation to help defray costs of the provided main dish. Advance registration is required.
The center is in Lost Bridge West SRA, off State Route 105, in western Huntington County.
The regular gate fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle will be in effect.
To register or for more information, call (260) 468-2127.
