Searching for Homer Lawson:
Ohio’s African American World War I Soldiers

Hopewell Culture NHP, 16062 State Route 104 | Map

Paul Larue will be Hopewell Culture’s special guest speaker.  Typically, African American World War I Soldiers are barely mentioned or completely left out when World War I is discussed. Ohio has a rich World War I heritage; including important contributions by African American Soldiers. Join Paul LaRue, award winning history teacher (retired) and member of the Ohio World War I Centennial Committee as he examines Ohio’s African American World War I Soldiers’ service and sacrifice.

Or, visit Hopewell Culture during our regular hours to learn more about Camp Sherman’s history and the ancient Indians who occupied this land before there was a Camp Sherman or even an America.  See artifacts from both periods of American history along with enlightening films about Camp Sherman.
