The Campaign and Election of 1880

Take a break from the commercials, debates and polls surrounding the 2012 election to learn more about the campaign of 1880, when Republican James A. Garfield faced Democrat Winfield Scott Hancock. What were the issues? How did the candidate campaign? How did anyone know what a candidate believed in the days before Facebook, Twitter and 24-hour news channels? Learn all of this and more on Saturday, November 3 at 1p.m. in the Visitor Center Auditorium. Program is free of charge; fees apply to tours of the Garfield home.
