Warren G. Harding Presidential Sites 380 Mt Vernon Ave, Marion, OH, USA Open in Google Map
6:30–8 p.m.

The Harding Presidential Sites’ Jon Andersen pulls back the curtains on the 1920 Republican and Democratic conventions to see what really took place behind the scenes, amid the boatload of rumors that have circulated for 100 years that Harding’s selection was tied to a Senate cabal meeting in a mysterious “smoke-filled room.” Hear how Ohioans Warren G. Harding and James M. Cox were chosen to face off in the 1920 presidential election.

This is a hybrid program, which will occur in person, as well as on the Harding Presidential Sites’ You Tube channel. No link or passcode is required.
