This Saturday, May 17 at 10:30 AM Red Hawk Wes Dikeman, an historical re-enactor, will present a program on the French & Indian and Revolutionary Wars at the United Church of Christ (stone church) in Elizabethtown, New York. He will share his extensive knowledge about the Abenaki Indians as first inhabitants of this area and their connections in these Wars. Red Hawk is a riveting storyteller who has been studying and interpreting this history for many years. He often takes part as a re-enactor in Revolutionary War living history weekends. We now have the opportunity to listen to him speak.
The talk is around 45 minutes long, followed by questions and answers for another half hour. This event is sponsored by the Champlain Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and is open to the public. Donations ($5.00/attendee) will be taken at the door.
