Civil War in the Mahoning Valley 9/21/19

Join us Saturday, September 21st at 1 pm as we welcome Traci Manning of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society for her lecture “Civil War in the Mahoning Valley: Explore the impact of the Civil War on Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.”
How did the region respond to the outbreak of war? What was the political atmosphere like as the country split apart? How were communities affected by the conflict? How did local residents like David Tod and William McKinley, along with hundreds of other local soldiers, respond to the call? These questions, and many more, will be answered in a presentation that includes primary sources, photographs, and artifacts for an introductory look at this tumultuous time period in local, regional, and national history.

The 2019 McKinley History Speakers Series is presented by the McKinley Memorial Museum and the McKinley Memorial Library. The events will take place in the Auditorium on the National McKinley Birthplace Memorial grounds.

All programs are free, open to the public, and handicap accessible. The museum is located in the balcony of the auditorium. The balconies and restrooms are not handicap accessible. The first floor of the auditorium is handicap accessible.

The McKinley Memorial Museum will be open for tours before and after the program.
