Music from the Civil War at Mentor Library

The Celtic Union Band performed classic songs from the Civil War yesterday at our Main Branch. If you couldn't make it, here's a short video to give you a taste of what you missed.

For more of the Celtic Union Band, you can visit their YouTube page.

We have another program about the Civil War this week.

For the last two years, the James A. Garfield National Historic Site has led a monthly lunch-time Civil War series at our Main Branch, and their war stories and facts have been fascinating.

Rangers and park volunteers discuss everything from the Battle of Gettysburg to Civil War Art to the role artillery played in the war.

At noon this Wednesday, Sept. 9, they will talk General William T. Sherman’s famous “March to the Sea” from Atlanta to the Georgia coast. All of the Civil War talks are free and open to the public. You can register for it on our website.

Come by and bring a lunch if you like!
