Capture Civil War battle flag to escape

• Updated Jan 30, 2019 at 3:45 PM

FREMONT — You are a Civil War soldier in the 72nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry mustered from Sandusky County.

During the embarrassing defeat your unit experienced at the Battle of Shiloh, the Rebels captured your regiment’s banner and have taken it back to their camp. This humiliation cannot stand!

You and your team have orders to proceed into the Confederate camp under the cover of darkness, scout out whatever clues you can find regarding the flag’s location, and retrieve it. Our sources tell us you should have one hour to complete your mission before the Rebel garrison becomes aware of your presence.

Complete the mission, and you will safely escape with your flag.

This is the theme of the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums’ Escape Room event, taking place Friday, March 22, Saturday, March 23, Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30.

Up to 10 participants at each time slot will have an hour to solve puzzles hidden throughout a museum gallery. Smaller groups may be combined into a team of 10.

Light refreshments will be served after each session.

There will be two sessions each night: 5:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at rbhayes.org/events. For information, call 419-332-2081, or visit rbhayes.org.

The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums is America’s first presidential library and the forerunner of the federal presidential library system. It is partially funded by the state of Ohio and affiliated with the Ohio History Connection. The Hayes Presidential Library & Museums is located at Spiegel Grove at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues.
