President Eisenhower had a special relationship with the town and famous battlefield of Gettysburg, going back to his days in Camp Colt. Learn about it here from Todd Arrington, the site directory for the James A. Garfield National Historic Site. (You can also learn about Arrington’s connection to both Gettysburg and Eisenhower.)

Our monthly Civil War series with James A. Garfield National Historic Site continues at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The topic will be President Lincoln’s contentious and close reelection campaign of 1864. The talk will be hosted via Zoom. Registration is required. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

In the meantime, you can visit our YouTube channel for more programs on our nation’s history. We have lectures on both President Eisenhower and the Battle of Gettysburg that you can watch at your convenience.
