Come join us and be a part of the General John A. Logan Museum family.

What Can I Do?

As a small museum with an even smaller staff, the General John A. Logan Museum depends upon volunteers to bring quality exhibits and educational programs to Southern Illinois.

Volunteers can help with research, office work, gift shop operations, grounds, building maintenance, restoration projects, as docents, leading school and group tours, living history and other special events, Logan Days, archaeological projects, and period clothing construction.

They can be any age! If you are thinking of a career in history or museums the John A. Logan Museum is a great resume builder. Work as little or as much as you want, but we suggest a minimum of four hours a month to keep current and involved in all the wonderful activities.

Sponsorship

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.

Keep the Legacy Alive

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.
