Independence Day Concert to include special additions for HPLM centennial

Celebrate Independence Day with a rousing, patriotic concert by the Toledo Symphony Concert Band at the site of America’s first presidential library, the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.

In honor of HPLM’s centennial this year, the performance will include dramatic readings from the diaries and letters of President Rutherford B. Hayes, who was a general in the Civil War; First Lady Lucy Hayes, who tended to wounded soldiers during the Civil War; and their son, Col. Webb Cook Hayes, founder of HPLM. Civil War reenactors will punctuate the “1812 Overture” with cannon fire.

The concert is from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Monday, July 4.
