On Friday and Saturday evenings
(July 11th & 12th) two living history scholars will bring
early American History to life. Doug Wood tells the story of
Outacite (Man Killer) Ostenaco, a Cherokee warrior who fought
along-side British forces in the French & Indian War. Karen
Vuranch will reprise her telling of the life of Mary Draper
Ingles who was captured by Indians very early in her life.
Programs will begin each evening at 7:00 PM with musical
entertainment followed by both scholars. Bring a lawn chair and
sit under our tent to enjoy an evening of "History
Alive". In addition, a variety of demonstrators will be on
hand throughout the weekend to add more history to the weekend.
Food will be available Friday and Saturday to allow you to spend
the day at the Johnston Farm, visit the Johnston home, Indian
& Canal Museum, and ride the canal boat General Harrison of
Piqua. On Saturday afternoon at 1:30 in the Education Center,
both scholars will conduct a workshop on how to develop a living
history character. Sunday will again feature tours of the
Johnston home, Indian & Canal Museum, canal boat rides, and
demonstrators and activities for the family.
