Kohlsaat Bridge Dedication

Galena Foundation's Ken Robb shakes hands with Rodger Shepard during the April 18 bridge dedication to Shepard's great grandfather Herman H. Kohlsaat while (from left) Galena City Councilman Charlie Fach, Galena Mayor Terry Renner and Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society Board President Steve Coats stand close by.

Kohlsaat, a once-resident of Galena, commissioned the "Peace in Union" painting in the museum and the Ulysses S. Grant statue in Grant Park. The bridge plaque was paid for the by Historical Society and the Galena Foundation, and the City of Galena installed it.
