The Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (CCSAR) and the American Spirit Education Alliance (ASEA) participated in the 3rd Annual Patriot Fair at the Garfield Middle School in Hamilton Ohio on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 8 AM until 3:15 PM. This event was scheduled to take place at the beginning of the school’s fall term.
The Youth Program Volunteers presented seven different topics at the Patriots Day Program held in the Garfield Middle School’s Gymnasium. The outreach delivered each of those topics to about 900 students with their history teachers present so they may use the introduction for future classroom learning. Mr. Matt Wilson and a new Principal at Garfield school, who is totally committed to what we are doing, enabled this great opportunity to us at their 3rd Annual Patriot Fair.

1 Artifacts of the Late 18th Century by Michael Gunn (CCSAR)
2 Washington’s Crossing by Dan Schmitz (CCSAR)
3 The Role of African Americans in the American Revolution by Mark Holland (CCSAR)
