Civil War reenactor in Corning
Corning Opera House Cultural Center will host OJ Fargo on Friday, Sept. 2, at 1 p.m. for First Friday Friends with a special program entitled “A Visit from a Civil War Soldier.” There is a small fee to attend, which includes refreshments. After an overview of Iowa’s involvement in the Civil War, the audience will be introduced to a returning Civil War soldier and his war experiences. The audience is encouraged to ask questions and engage in a dialogue with the “soldier” who dresses in full Union Army regalia. Fargo will bring a full roster of all men who served in and from Iowa in the Civil War to enable the participants to check for ancestors who served.
The Corning Opera House is located at 800 Davis Ave. in downtown Corning with free street parking. Tickets are $8.
