Bean River Civil War Round table

This sunday, March 14, I participated in the first “winter civil war event” of the Bean River Civil War Round table at the Fayette Opera House. They showed the Disney film about the Great Train Race, and highlighted the stolen train’s conductor, who lived in Stryker, OH. I set up a display about “Hell & Homefront” and talked several times about Fulton County Historical Society’s efforts to recognize the Ohio 150 event that begins next year. Tom Spiess moderated a discussion of those present about what they would like to see happen during those years. Ideas discussed were: a Late Winter ball re-enactment, combining with the Fulton County Historical Society to create a Civil War Summer Camp for kids during those 5 summers, school programs, and other re-enactment activities.
