Thanksgiving Dinner with Abraham Lincoln Hale Farm & Village, Bath Nov. 17 Go over the river (the Cuyahoga) and through the woods (at Cuyahoga Valley National Park) to Hale Farm & Village, where history buff Jerry Payn acts as Abraham Lincoln — who made Thanksgiving a national holiday — during the living history museum’s annual feast. “Lincoln” usually reads his Thanksgiving Proclamation or Gettysburg Address, and costumed educators from Hale Farm & Village sit at the table and discuss life during Lincoln’s time. Dinner includes turkey and pumpkin pie, and some dishes — including the green beans and leeks casserole — are made from vegetables grown at Hale Farm. 330-666-3711;

U.S. Grant Days Georgetown Apr. 26–28 Historic Georgetown was the hometown of Ulysses Grant, whose 1820s Boyhood Home and Schoolhouse are now prime attractions. Every April, the village salutes Grant’s birthday with a three-day, Civil War-era observance that includes infantry drills, period foods such as cornbread, ham-and-bean soup, and skillygalee (salt pork and beans); and local folks play-acting as General Sherman, Julia Grant, and other notables. Highlighting the festivities are appearances by the eminent Grant living historian, Curt Fields, who also portrays Grant for the National Park Service. 877-372-8177;
