The Kent Civil War Society has cancelled all remaining events in 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation. The society plans on beginning meetings again as soon as possible in 2021. Tentatively, the first meeting will be in January. A final decision on that is expected in early December.

January 2021 will mark the 30th anniversary of the founding of the society. Plans are to make the January meeting a special event in celebration of the anniversary. Watch for more details as they become available. Throughout 2021, we plan to focus on topics that relate directly to Portage County and Northeast Ohio.

In recognition of the number of cancelled meetings and to encourage members to come back once meetings resume, the society will extend the membership of anyone paid for 2020 through the end of 2021. Hope to see everyone once we are able to meet again!


It is our sad duty to report that society member Robin Montgomery passed away recently. We are grateful for the support he gave the Kent Civil War Society for many years and offer our condolences to all who knew and loved Robin.
