Leaders & Legacies of the Civil War
General Casement of Ohio
Painesville's "Jack" Casement was already a national figure when he drove in the 'Golden Spike' at Promontory Point. His crew had just set a world record putting down eight miles of track in one day during construction of the Trans-Continental Railroad. As a Major and Colonel in the Civil War, he led his regiments from the front. At the battle of Franklin, his commanding General credited him for "saving the day" for the Union Army. By the end of the war he was a Brigadier General. Speaker: David Lintern, James A. Garfield NHS.
