Out of the Past
Louis Kossuth honored in Hungary to this day
By Gene Miller
Kossuth County contains some of the richest and most fertile farm ground in the world and takes its name from the Hungarian patriot Louis Kossuth.
Louis Kossuth was born in 1802 in Monok, Hungary which was then part of Austria. As an adult he long advocated for a separate Hungarian republic which for a time landed him in prison, but he was eventually released by popular demand.
