M JILITA RYRECORD
OF INTEREST HEIRE
'Michigan's Military Record," by
Miss Sue I. Silliman, Librarian at
Three Rivers, has just been published.
S~uch a record has never been written
before.
In the first chapter Miss Silliman
yies the history of the Revolutionary
soldiers of Michigan, their military
records and something of their lives
after they came to this state as pio-
neers. The second. chapter is devoted
to the Territorial Pensioners. This
required considerable research work
in government records, as the history
'las not been written before.
A history of the Medal of Hongr
Men of Michigan forms a portion of.
Ithe book. Two of the four Medal of
:Honor Men of thne country who have
been decorated twice are Michigan
nien. It is also interesting to note
that two of the M~ichigan Medal of
Honor Men are claimed by Ann Arbor,
one of them Conrad Noll, who is still
living here, and Patrick Irwin, now
deceased.
The introduction of this book is
written' by Miss Silliman herself, and
the preface by Mrs. William IH. Waite,
who was state resent at the time of
the compilation. The book was pub-
lished by the, Michigan Historicall
Commission.
