Morgan's Raid--The Civil War Comes to Ohio!

(June 3, 2014)  Join us Monday, June 9, at 7:00 pm as local historian John H. Barnett presents the exciting story of the Confederate cavalry raid through Indiana and Ohio in July, 1863. Union troops under Major General Ambrose Burnside gave chase through 19 Ohio counties, fighting the only Civil War battle in Ohio, at Buffington Island, which saw the death of Carroll County’s Major John McCook.  Finally, after a pursuit of over 500 miles, Union cavalry ran the remaining Confederates to ground near  Salineville.  This program is suitable for the whole family and will be held in the library's Community Meeting Room.
