When most people think of the Civil War, they think of the South. But that war touched all areas of the country, including Ohio. That’s why Westlake Porter Public Library will present The Civil War in Northern Ohio on Tuesday, August 18 at 7 p.m.
Local historian and author John Vacha will be the speaker.The program will be based on David Van Tassel’s Beyond Bayonets, and will focus on life on the home front in Cleveland during the war. Special attention will be given to the role played behind the front lines by women and the Soldiers Aid Society.To register please call 440-250-5460 or visit http://signup.westlakelibrary.org:8080.
