The activities, appropriate for elementary school age children, will include singing period songs, a craft, characters in period costumes, a presentation on a typical soldier’s life and information about Wheeling’s own General Jesse Reno, who was killed at the battle of South Mountain. The cities of Reno, Nev.; Reno, Ohio; Reno, Okla.; and Reno, Pa., are named after our local hero. Children can also enjoy cookies, drinks, and a small gift bag. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The program is sponsored by the West Virginia Independence Hall Foundation. https://wvculture.org/free-family-fun-at-west-virginia-independence-hall-april-22/
