Allen Shattuck update

Matt VanAcker, Director, Tour, Education and Information Service for the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, and curator of Save the Flags, recently shared with me two fascinating bits of information regarding Allen Shattuck, formerly of Company G: the first is Shattuck’s climb up the capitol dome and the second concerns his role as a delivery person in Lansing after the war. Shattuck, along with his two brothers Daniel and Nelson, served in Company G, 3rd Michigan during the Civil War. See the sketches of the three Shattuck brothers.
