Newton County and the Civil War
Most of the information on this page originally appeared in
the Newton County Historical Society's newsletter, "The Newcomer". For
reseacher's sake, we've compiled them here in one spot.
Special to Kyle Conrad for his timeless efforts to document each and
every Civil War Veteran with ties to Newton County. The majority of the
information here was contributed by him. Also, a special thanks to
Bernie Murphy for documenting the 99th Regiment, and to John Yost for
his history of the 51st.
