Tallmadge Civil War Society to take a walk through Glendale Cemetery
The Tallmadge Civil War Society will literally take a walk through history June 17 when John Gurnish will guide a tour of the Civil War dead at Glendale Cemetery.
The Cemetery is located at 150 Glendale Ave. in Akron. The meeting begins at the Cemetery at 6 p.m. The public is invited and attendance is free.
The Glendale Cemetery recently celebrated its 175th anniversary. It has been the final resting place for veterans of every American war.
Gurnish is a Civil War researcher and is a former instructor at Ellet High School. He has frequently addressed the Society in previous years on topics related to Ohio and the Civil War.
The TCWS meets the third Tuesday of the month.
