Civil War Soldier Brought to Life by Jeff McIntire

Jeff McIntire will be portraying the 79th Ohio Volunteer Infantry which was raised in Warren, Clinton, Clemont, and Hamilton counties.  Focus will be on the Battle of Bentonville, the largest Civil War battle fought in North Carolina, March 19–21, 1865.

The Confederate defeat marked a serious weakening of one of its last surviving major armies but was a significant enough engagement that it convinced Union General Ulysses S. Grant to leave General William T. Sherman in North Carolina. Jeff will touch base on the rest of the war concentrating on the details of clothing, equipment, arms, and personal effects of the Ohio soldier in the American Civil War.

Jeff’s impersonations cover all sides of a controversy (white settlers vs. indigenous people, Union vs. Confederate soldiers), giving the common person’s perspective and way of life.  He incorporates either authentic or reproduced artifacts into his talks.  While giving an impersonation, he finds it best to speak from a third person viewpoint.  He finds that in this way, he can convey more information as he isn’t constrained as to what he can or can’t say and has found it makes for a better conversation.    Jeff’s presentation will take place from 7:30-8:30 PM.

Speaker Bios:

Jeff McIntire has studied wilderness survival and early Ohio white and native historic impressions from the early days of this country through the Civil War.  He is a 1988 graduate of Clinton Massie High School and attended Mount Vernon Nazarene College.  He became hooked on history when his parents took him to see the outdoor drama of Tecumseh when he was five years old.  Throughout his life, he has studied wilderness survival and incorporates that knowledge into the early Ohio white and/or native historic impressions he presents at historic venues and in presentations to groups.
