War of 1812 in Northwest Ohio

A quick plug for an event I am putting together at the Franciscan Center at Lourdes University:

"Contrasting Perspectives on the War of 1812 in NW Ohio”

Lourdes University is pleased to announce its 2012 Distinguished Speaker Series in History addressing “The War of 1812 in Northwest Ohio” on Friday, March 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the Franciscan Center in Sylvania. Guest lecturers include Jamie Oxendine and Larry Nelson, PhD, who will provide contrasting perspectives.

Mr. Oxendine is the Director of the Black Swamp InterTribal Foundation and a respected Native American speaker, writer, teacher and storyteller. Dr. Nelson is a History Professor with Bowling Green State University and previously served as Site Director for Fort Meigs, a nationally accredited museum and site of one of Ohio’s 1812 battlefields.

Previous lectures have addressed a variety of historical topics including the Salem Witch trials, President Andrew Jackson and the Indian Removal, United States Slavery leading to the Civil War, and the Presidency of Thomas Jefferson.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Michael Brooks, Visiting Assistant Professor of History: mbrooks@lourdes.edu.

The event should be about 90 minutes in length if you are making additional plans that day: two speakers plus a Q&A session afterward.

Thanks, E.E.S. We are hoping to get a good turnout, and the topic does not get as much coverage as I think it should in the overall discourse related to the war.

Sounds wonderful looking forward to attending. Do you have to r.s.v.p or just first come first serve?

Just roll in, INC. The theater seats 800 (I would be utterly amazed at that kind of attendance!) so there will be plenty of seats. Free parking at the Franciscan Center, too.

In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

Hope to see you there!

Just in case you've missed them........Guest columnist Frank Kuron has had a piece on this topic in the last three Toledo Free Press issues.

Very interesting.
