Hillsdale has a strong connection with the Civil War in its history, as well. During the s, the campus was host to prominent abolitionists and speakers such as Frederick Douglass and Edward Everett. During the war itself, there were many Hillsdale students who left Michigan behind to don the Federal blue and fight to preserve the Union.
As it turns out, Hillsdale is connected to one of the five Civil War veterans who went on to become president: In his early days, James Garfield did not have a discernible direction to his life.
Born in a log cabin in the old Western Reserve of Northeast Ohio inGarfield did not live in a world of privilege. His father died when he was two, and his mother Eliza struggled to raise her young family. Despite these difficult times, Garfield developed a love of reading. The pages of a book could take him away from his meager home life and transport him into new worlds.
Through books, he developed the desire to become a sailor, a job which he believed would lead to a life of adventure.
At the age of sixteen, he left his home and went to Cleveland looking for a job on one of the ships traveling the Great Lakes. Unsuccessful in Cleveland, Garfield instead found a job on the canal boat Evening Star, where he worked for about six weeks in the late summer and early fall of After falling into the canal repeatedly and becoming ill, James returned home to his mother.
Upon coming home, Garfield was ill and unsure of what his next step would be. Though he still wanted to return to his work on the canal, his mother desperately wanted a better life for her son.
She pleaded with James to get an education, believing that schooling was the best path toward a better life. Bates was just three years older than James, but he had been one of the first students at the Geauga Seminary in Chester, Ohio. The school had been founded by Free-Will Baptists in the early s.
The original charter for the school from the Ohio Legislature was rejected by its founders because it restricted the school from admitting any students of color, which was contrary to the abolitionist principles of the Free-Will Baptists who founded the school.
The school opened in in a church in Chester, Ohio, where students met while other buildings were under construction. While many school teachers were cold and austere, Bates was warm and engaging.
In Bates, Garfield saw something of himself.
Bates was also a native of the old Western Reserve, and he had used education to pull himself up and make a life for himself. With the influence of Bates and his mother, Garfield agreed to enroll in the school and leave his life on the canal behind.
To do this, his mother gave him seventeen dollars, which would cover part of his tuition. For the rest of it, Garfield would have to work hard, save, and live a spartan existence with nothing but the bare necessities.electra on azalea path- sylvia plath Sylvia Plath employs vivid imagery and a reminiscent tone to convey her feelings of grief, guilt, and disdain the day she first visited her father's grave, and the devastating effects his death had on her.
