As we honor those who served this Veterans Day, we thought we would look at how Cleveland has supported our country throughout numerous wars. To tell Hollie and Alexa about our city’s historical service was Dennis Barrie. Dennis is the Director of Experience Design at the Cleveland History Center.

Here are the questions Hollie & Alexa asked:

Our city has a long history of service. Just how far back do our efforts go?

Tell us about our involvement in the Revolutionary and then the Civil War…

What about World War I? How did people in Cleveland feel about getting involved?

World War II and Vietnam had very different reactions within in our country. Was that true for Cleveland as well?

Have you visited the Cleveland History Center? What interesting facts about Cleveland did you learn? Find us on Social Media @ ‘Live on Lakeside’ and let us know!
