The program for July at the Fayette County Historical Society Museum was the Civil War.

I went to the program on July 5th when Bob Davis portrayed Governor William Dennison, a governor of Ohio during the Civil War. He talked about his term as governor and the hardships of the war for Ohioans.

The Henry Casey Camp #92 of The Sons of Union Veterans held an encampment and showed rifle salutes.

A tour of the museum display of Civil War memorabilia followed the presentation.

On July 26th the museum program was a patriotic flag tribute and a short history of the Gettysburg Address, by Abraham Lincoln portrayed by Victor Pontius.

While Ed Helt read the description/meaning of the 13 folds of a flag at a military funeral for presentation to the family, a flag was folded for the attendees.

After the presentation, the Honor Guard played taps and then gave a 21 gun salute.
