BATH TWP.: The Bath Historical Society will convene its next general meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Bath Township Museum, 1241 N. Cleveland-Massillon Road.
Sharon Myers, president of the William Wetmore Chapter of the Daughters of 1812, will present a program celebrating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, when the relatively new country declared war on the British Empire.
In that year, the frontier of Ohio was barely established, and the war caused great hardship to the local pioneers. Myers’ presentation will focus on the local participation in that war.
In addition, Jack Hawley, a local resident and an 1812 re-enactor, will demonstrate the use of a musket.
These presentations complement the museum’s current exhibit, “Challenges of World Wars and the Great Depression,” which is on display through Dec. 19.
The museum’s next exhibit will be “Walk Down Memory Lane,” featuring the decades of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and is planned to open April 1.
The meeting is free and open to the public. For details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
