To commemorate the American Civil War, and the role played by the Johnston Farm; the Johnston Farm Friends Council presents Frank Bullock, from Sherman’s hometown of Lancaster, Ohio as William Tecumseh Sherman in 'An Evening with the General'.
The Johnston Farm served as Camp Piqua in the late summer of 1862 and some of the men who trained there became a part of Sherman’s forces.
A dessert reception will precede the 7:30 program, which is a major fundraiser to support the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency. The Piqua Country Club is the setting for this unique opportunity to become acquainted with one of key figures in the American Civil War. Preceding the reception and presentation, guests may make reservations for a period dinner at their own expense in the Country Club dining room.
This is a RESERVATION ONLY event; so call either 800-752-2619 or 773-2522 for more information and to secure your spot for this trip back 150 years.
COST: $30.00, $25.00 for Johnston Farm Friends Council and Ohio Historical Society members.
John Johnston's son and grandsons served as well in the war between the states,
though not with General Sherman. Check out our Civil War page for more information!(http://johnstonfarmohio.com/civil_war_at_the_johnston_farm)
