Mt. Vernon: “Spend an Evening With William Tecumseh Sherman” Chautauqua
Join ELIXIR (Re-Inventing Americana) for their Chautauqua “Spend an Evening with……” series of living history performances. On the anniversary of exactly 150 years since Fort Sumter, enjoy a performance by Mike Petee as William Tecumseh Sherman. Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, it only seems right to bring a man who was born in Lancaster and spent time in Mount Vernon as well as Mansfield before making Georgia howl. Did he really say “War is Hell!”? Find out from the General.
Details: Music will also be performed by Steve Ball, who preforms traditional Civil War era music. Open to the public. Free, but donations appreciated.
Sponsor: ELIXIR (Re-Inventing Americana) and The Ohio Humanities Council
Location: ThePlace@TheWoodward, 111 S. Main St., Mt. Vernon, Ohio
