Two historic documents of the Civil War era will be auctioned Saturday night to raise funds for the Wheeling Soldiers and Sailors Monument Fund.

Wheeling Heritage and area residents are spearheading an effort to move the monument from Wheeling Park to the downtown area, adjacent to West Virginia Independence Hall.

Jeanne Finstein, president of Friends of Wheeling, and Joseph Laker, president of the West Virginia Independence Hall Foundation, spoke at the Ohio County Public Library Thursday and shared information about the auction items and other historic documents from former Wheeling resident Stan Klos’ collection that are on display through Sept. 25 at the hall.
