George Vix- Who was killed in action on August 30,1862
Over 6 dozen young men lost their lives in that war.
We just recently held our annual Veterans Day program here at the Poppenhusen Institute, which was very well attended. Each and every year we will be here to remember and honor those who as young men, gave their lives so that we can continue to enjoy the freedoms that we do today.
Never let their sacrifices be forgotten.
Joseph Witzel was a cobbler (a shoemaker) who operated his business on the land on which the Poppenhusen Institute was built. In fact, he sold the property to Conrad Poppenhusen. That deed of sale is in Poppenhusen's archives today.
