Chronicle is the membership magazine of the Historical Society of Michigan. It is a gem of a resource. If you aren’t a member and love Michigan history we recommend you join just to get the magazine if nothing else. You can subscribe here.

Here are a couple points of interest taken from the Chronicle, Vol. 35, No.3, Fall 2012.

In Pellston, through the spring of 2013, the Little Traverse Bay bands of Odawa Indians, Emmet County and its historical commission, along with Petersburg National Battlefield present “Soldiers in the Shadows”. The exhibit, featured at Pellston Regional Airport, tells the story of the first Michigan sharpshooters, Company K, and Michigan’s Anishnaabek who comprised one of the largest all-Indian units for the Union Army during the Civil War. For more information, visit or call 231-348-1704.
