Upcoming Events

    • Monday, November 15, 2021
    • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    • Cleo Redd Fisher Museum (203 E. Main Street Loudonville OH 44842)

    Alan Fitzpatrick joins us for a hands-on talk and demonstration that brings to life the history and material culture of 18th century Native Americans living in what was called the "Ohio Country."  Utilizing artifacts and reproductions of tools, hunting gear, weapons, clothing, foodstuffs, and common household items, Fitzpatrick illustrates what life was like before contact with Europeans in the mid-1700's.

    Fitzpatrick will also show and examine European trade goods, such as metal, glass and cloth, and discuss how these items quickly changed Native lives forever.  Though items such as iron tools, copper kettles, cast-iron pots, woven cloth, and flintlock weapons improved Native lives, they also created unforeseen consequences including a reliance on European goods and the disintegration of Native culture.

    Fitzpatrick, originally of Canada, is the author of numerous books on early American history, particularly related to the conflicts between Natives and colonists in the late 1700's.  He is also one of the founding members of Fort Henry Days, a living history commemoration of the last battle of the American Revolution, at Oglebay Park in West Virginia.

    This event is free for all to attend, with books available for purchase.  Doors open at 6:30 pm.
