Author David Dixon discusses the political context of the Gettysburg dedication.
The year 1913 is one of the most interesting times in Oakwood’s history. To gain a better understanding of Oakwood and its people during this time, we’ll embark on a tour described in an article published in the Dayton Daily News on July 22, 1913 by an unknown author. The article is titled “Where Town and Country Meet,” which is apt because the City of Dayton lies just to the north of Oakwood, whereas the rest of the village is mainly surrounded by farmland, with the exception of Hills and Dales Park standing to the southwest.
Join us for the next program in the Far Hills Speaker Series, a collaboration with the Oakwood Historical Society.
