Speaker: Keith Johnson

In the early 1990's, Dr. Keith Johnson was active with the Butte County Historical Society, and the Society received an inquiry about local Civil War monuments. This prompted a look at the striking statue in the Chico Cemetery. Keith will look at who made the monument, and how it has survived more than a century of abuse and deterioration. It is doubtful that anyone from Chico took part in the "real war" back East and through the Midwest. And if that is so, who put the monument in place in the Chico Cemetery? For the answer, hear Dr. Keith Johnson, who logged in 39 years at Chico State in the Anthropology Department, tell the story.
