The Hiram College Choir Presents Songs Inspired by the Civil War Era
Music was as much a part of the Civil War era as battles, slavery, secession, and political elections. Join the Hiram College Choir as they beautifully sing original songs inspired by the era. Hiram College was once known as the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute, and James A. Garfield was a student and later a teacher and president of "the Eclectic" before joining the Union army to fight in the Civil War. Hiram College has many Garfield connections, and we are excited to welcome the school's choir for the presentation! Free of charge.
