Revolutionary War re-enactor Mark Cory will bring the Battle of the Olentangy and the burning of Colonel Crawford at the stake to life during a program at 6 p.m. July 9 at Upper Sandusky Community Library.
Cory recently retired as an American and Ohio history teacher, a job he held for 35 years at the Colonel Crawford Intermediate School. He is a 22-year member of the Brigade of the American Revolution and a private in the eighth Pennsylvania unit, garrisoned at Fort Laurens in Bolivar, Ohio.
Cory also is a founding member, sergeant and commanding officer of the Colonel Crawford Company. The group does various events around the state, but primarily was formed to interpret the site of Colonel Crawford’s capture by the Lenape Tribe on June 7th, 1782.
