I Have a Civil War Ancestor . . . Now What?  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Virtual Meeting
Presenter: Brian Rhinehart
Civil War soldiers often left a rich genealogical paper trail.  Many of these records are tucked away at the National Archives in Washington DC.  Learn what records are available for your ancestors only at the National Archives, what records are online already, and how to access all of them.  These records may unlock some of the family stories that have been forgotten over time, as well as break down a brick wall or two! Visit Brian's website at www.CivilWarRecords.com
Brian Rhinehart’s presentation will be helpful for all of those who are considering preparing an application for our new Civil War Lineage program.

A Civil History of Camp Dennison, Ohio  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Virtual Meeting
Presenter: Gary Knepp
This presentation will tell the story of Camp Dennison (named after Ohio Governor William Dennison), a large Civil War facility located in eastern Hamilton County near Milford on the Little Miami River. During its four-year history more than 100,000 men from Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee passed through the camp's gates. Men from Camp Dennison fought in nearly every battle of the war including the far west against the Sioux. The presentation will cover the camp's troubled beginnings, its partial transformation into a General Hospital, its response to John Hunt Morgan's raid and its role during the Ohio National Guard's mobilization in 1864. Profiles of several soldiers, including future Lt. General Henry Corbin of Monroe Township, Capt. Asbury Gatch of Milford and Gilbert Fisher of Miami Township, will be presented.
