Leaders & Legacies of Civil War Era: History of Medal of Honor

12:00 pm - 07/11/2018

@ Mentor Public Library

8215 Mentor Ave
Mentor OH  44060



Join James A. Garfield NHS staff and volunteers at Mentor Public Library on the second Wednesday of each month for a new talk on “Leaders & Legacies of the Civil War Era!” The United States had few awards for bravery when the Civil War began, but that changed in 1862 when President Lincoln approved creation of the Medal of Honor—now the nation’s highest award for military valor. Learn about the history of the Medal and some of the most notable Civil War recipients. Program is free of charge; please make a free reservation by calling Mentor Public Library at 440-255-8811. Attendees are invited to bring a lunch to enjoy during the talk. Speaker: Todd Arrington, James A. Garfield NHS.
