Capitol Day


 Join us at the Statehouse on October 13th!

Start your homeschool year off right and head to the Statehouse on October 13th for a fun

Capitol Day is a great field trip for students and teacher alike! It provides an important opportunity for home educators to better understand the legislative process in Ohio and how we can positively affect this system. This event is also a wonderful way to fulfill some of the history requirements for your school year!

Come and enjoy engaging speakers, special Statehouse tours, a legislative update with Melanie Elsey, an interactive Scavenger Hunt for all our guests, give-aways and more! All students will also receive a beautiful certificate to commemorate the day and their participation.

Capitol Day FAQ

Meet one of our Capitol Day presenters...more TBA soon!

Historical Reenactor, Bill Foley

Bill’s family is originally from York, Pennsylvania, which is just outside of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

At an early age, Gettysburg was the spark that ignited the flame to his interest and passion in American Civil War history. Since that time, Bill has spent endless hours visiting historic American sites and battlefields like: Manassass, Shiloh, Fredericksburg, Antietam, Gettysburg, Chickamauga, Appomattox Court House to name only a few.

Bill’s first job as a pre-teen was working at the original Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center.

Bill is an active member of the National Civil War Museum and a member of the National Civil War Battlefield Preservation Trust. You don’t want to miss this exciting presentation!!
