Second Saturdays to feature Civil War reenactors on Sept. 10

(Kids learn to paint at a Second Saturdays R 4 Kids event earlier this year.)

Kids can learn first-hand what it was like to be enlisted into a Civil War regiment during Second Saturdays R 4 Kids on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.

Second Saturdays R 4 Kids is a monthly educational series for kids through age 12. They learn about history through hands-on activities. The theme this year is “The Life and Times of Rutherford B. Hayes.”

During the Sept. 10 event, Civil War reenactors will “enlist” the kids into the 23rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, which was Rutherford B. Hayes’ regiment. Hayes rose to the rank of general in that unit.

The event is from 11 a.m. to noon. Cost is $1 for kids. There is no fee for adults to bring children to this program.

Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 419-332-2081, ext. 230, or
