Years ago, a teacher in Pontiac started a student project to study the impact of acid rain by measuring tombstones in an old cemetery. Then a retired Air Force officer asked the class if they ever thought about identifying who was buried under those tombstones. That sent the students, and in some ways, the entire community, on an odyssey to identify them, culminating this month with a ceremony honoring the lost Civil War vets from their community.
