Visitors to James A. Garfield National Historic Site were treated to a robust weekend of living history during the park’s eighth annual Civil War encampment weekend. The event was funded in a large part by a $6,500 Eastern National Competitive Grant and featured reenactors, hands-on family activities, and a series of educational programs.
This is the second year in a row that Eastern National has provided a grant to support this event. Click here for more information on this and other examples of our funds at work.
