Controversy about Selling Civil War Cannons at Sugar Grove Cemetery in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio

Click on title to read the story published December 17, 2012 in the "Coshocton Tribune" online paper from the Associated Press about the controversy surrounding a proposed sale of two Civil War cannons at the Sugar Grove Cemetery which is in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio.  Apparently, the high insurance costs for these original canons are a factor in this decision.  

It will be interesting to see what the outcome will be with this proposal and if it will come to pass. 

Currently, on "Find A Grave" for Sugar Grove Cemetery in Wilmington there are are 2,567 memorials posted.
