John A. Logan would probably have agreed with author Mark Yost when he said: "History, while sometimes made up of a few acts of the great is more often shaped by the many acts of the small."Logan knew that his Army was made up of thousands of men and that his success as a General depended upon these men doing their best to carry out his orders. If they failed to do their part, the battle, no matter how brilliant the General who planned it, would be lost."

The General John A. Logan Museum is committed to keeping the legacy of John A. Logan alive and to memorializing the hundreds of thousands of men who answered the call to save the Union. We need you to be a part of this commitment.
A portion of our funding has come from organizations such as the Murphysboro Park District.  But the majority of our support comes from many small gifts from individuals dedicated to preserving our history for the future.  From the purchase of artifacts to development of exhibits, films, and presentations, and from the children's education programs and living history demonstrations to the restoration and maintenance of the buildings and grounds - our contributors - you - make it all possible.  Please consider being part of the team that preserves this most worthy mission.
