Have what it takes to be a WWI soldier “over there” or a civilian over here in Akron 100 years ago? Join us on Sunday, July 15th to travel back in time to the year 1918 to find out! Take a military mental test. Try on a WWI army uniform. Meet an AEF (American Expeditionary Force) soldier. Listen to period music. And, chat with one of the Seiberling’s friends, business associates or staff members in the Manor House to discover what life was really like at this critical time in our community’s history. Also, on this day, get an early preview of an upcoming local documentary to be aired in early November: "Summit County and the Great War: In the Words of Those Who Served."
