July 13 - Fannie Bailey, Oberlin, and the Civil War
July 13 (Wednesday at 7:15 p.m.) A Life Recorded One Day at a Time: Fannie Bailey, Oberlin, and the Civil War. Fannie White Bailey kept a journal while living with her husband James in Oberlin in the 1850s and 1860s. During the Civil War, Fannie recorded the daily events of her life and those of her community. The journal provides a glimpse into the Oberlin home front and illuminates the complex and diverse nature of how the national conflict altered Ohioans' lives.
Presented by Kelly D. Selby, a Walsh University assistant professor of history. (This program is rescheduled from last winter when inclement weather forced it to be postponed.) Location: Kendal at Oberlin's Heiser Auditorium. Free and open to all.
