Historical society sets program, meetingMarch 7, 2019
The Dubois County Historical Society will host a presentation titled “Flags on the Indiana Frontier” at its spring meeting on Thursday, March 28.
The meeting will be held at the Dubois County Museum, 2704 N. Newton St., Jasper. The public is invited.
A buffet dinner, business meeting, election of officers and program will begin at 6:30 p.m.
The program will be provided by Frank Doughman, superintendent of the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Vincennes. He will talk about Clark’s capture of Fort Sackville in Vincennes from the British on Feb. 25, 1779, 240 years ago.
In addition to serving as park superintendent, Doughman has worked on many projects and committees. Currently, he co-chairs the Vincennes Stage Door Canteen’s WWII USO show and works with the two living history events — the Rendezvous and the Muster on the Wabash. He teaches programs on living history, often concerning clothing and sewing period clothes. He commands an 1812 re-enacting group, which portrays the First Regiment of Rifleman. Doughman has an in-depth understanding of life on the Indiana frontier.
Reservations are due by March 20. The cost of the meal is $15. Membership dues of $5 also are payable. For reservations, call Mary Ann Hayes at 482-2847 or Fred Clark at 482-5203. E-mail messages may be sent to email@example.com.
