In 1840, war hero William Henry Harrison—of Cincinnati’s own North Bend—ran for president. Senator Thomas Morris, a staunch opponent of slavery who lived in Heritage Village’s Elk Lick House in the early 1840’s, supported Harrison after his own party rejected his anti-slavery views. Come see both men speak at this election rally!
For the second year in a row, Heritage Village will host an 1840’s political rally on Saturday, August 19. Come and take part—and find out what political issues held the attention of this country before the Civil War. Print your own ballot in our print shop and cast your vote, taste some not-so-hard cider by our log house, hear William Henry Harrison address the crowd, and see a duel of honor played out.
