The Garst Museum Lecture Series #1 Ohio Native American Indians: A Sorrowful Journey

Garst Museum in Greenville, Ohio is pleased to announce the first lecture of the 2012-2013 Speaker Series. On Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. the museum will welcome Randall Buchman, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at Defiance College. Professor Buchman specializes in Ohio Valley American Indian studies and has worked at prehistoric sites in Ohio and Indiana.

Professor Buchman’s lecture will focus on his book, A Sorrowful Journey. The lecture will chronicle the removal of the Shawnee, Seneca, and Ottawa Indians from Ohio in 1832 based on the recently discovered journal of John Shelby. Shelby was an assistant conductor on the journey as the tribes followed their own “trail of tears,” walking across four states to lands west of the Mississippi River. Professor Buchman’s presentation will include illustrations of Shelby’s journal and maps.

These popular lecture series are free and open to the public. Support for the Garst Lecture Series comes, in part, from Harry D. Stephens Memorial Trust, Inc.

The Garst Museum is located at:
205 N. Broadway, Greenville, OH 45331
