Norwegian author Anne Haugan Wagn and her companion Svein Erik Odden were guests of Gene Estensen in Atlanta over the April 19, 2003 weekend. The Norwegian guests were presented pins by City of Marietta Mayor Bill Dunaway while visiting the gravesite of "Norwegian Regiment" soldier John Johnson Thoe at the Marietta National Cemetery. 10,132 Union casulties of the Atlanta Campaign are buried here, including about a dozen from the 15th Wisconsin. Anne Wagn presented the Mayor a copy of her latest book on emigration from Norway to America. Replies: There have been no replies.
