Mantua Historical Society Hosts Garfield
Mantua – The Mantua Historical Society hosted General James A. Garfield, portrayed by Wayne Enders, on Sunday, June 9th, at the Mantua Center Christian Church. Mr. Enders (pictured) had clothes made especially for him that replicated Garfield’s. Before becoming a general, James A. Garfield was a minister, who actually preached in this same church. The topic for the evening event, which had approximately forty people in attendance, was Gen. Garfield as a newly elected congressman to Northeastern Ohio, a retired major general of the Rebellion, and a past president of Hiram College. The Society’s next meeting, on Monday, July 15th, will be a road trip to a local home to view their antiques.
