Artifacts and Display Cabinet Donated by CWSGI

to Lake of the Woods Association

In November 2012, the Civil War Study Group, Inc., presented to the Lake of the Woods Association (LOWA) a custom-built cabinet to display artifacts that were either found inside Lake of the Woods or on the Wilderness Battlefield. More than 100 artifacts can be seen in the cabinet, which is in the LOW Clubhouse. Artifacts for the display are either loaned temporarily by owners or donated to CWSGI to become the property of the Association.
