General James A. Garfield and Cleveland During the Civil War

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Brunswick Library

General James Garfield and Cleveland in the Civil War covers the miliary life of our twentieth president and how the city of Cleveland contributed to the Northern cause. Garfield entered the volunteer army as a Colonel with no experience and advanced to Major General in just two years. He led an army in the battle of Middle Creek and served as Chief of Staff for General Rosecrans at the Battle of Chickamauga.

The city of Cleveland sent a number of highly regarded regiments to the Union Army as well as sending food, supplies and money to the military. The city held a Sanitary Fair which was one of the most successful in the Northern states.

Victory on Two Fronts: Cleveland Indians & Baseball

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Buckeye Library
Buckeye Community Room

Victory on Two Fronts is the story of the Cleveland Indians and Baseball during World War II and beyond. The attack on Pearl Harbor propelled the United States into war and changed the face of a nation as well as our national game. Baseball had to adapt to stay alive and provide entertainment for a population immersed in war jobs and support for our soldiers overseas. The game survived minus the most popular stars in Bob Feller, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio. After the war ended, Bill Veeck bought the Indians and led the team to the 1948 pennant and World Series. Veeck broke the color barrier in the American League by signing Larry Doby in 1947.

Just How Weird is Ohio?

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Seville Library
The answer? Ohio is very, very weird…and proud of it, too! 

Join paranormal researcher and author, James A. Willis on this wild romp through his favorite weird places in Ohio. Along the way, we will check out a field of giant concrete corncobs, the world’s largest crystal ball, the enigmatic Boy with the Boot statue, and a gravestone with the imprint of a bloody horseshoe on it. 

Of course, we’ll have to swing by and see some haunted houses like Franklin Castle. We might even do a little “time” inside Mansfield Reformatory. Wherever we go, I’m sure everyone will enjoy this very weird ride!
