Dinner & A Little History: Wau-Bun The Early Days

Join us for dinner on Thursday September 20th 2018, at the Gaylord Building for our Dinner Lecture Series: Wau-Bun The Early Days: A Travelouge with Juliette Kinzie.

Juliette Magill married the famous fur trader and U.S. Indian sub-agent John H. Kinzie in 1830. He invited her to share with him the great adventure of life in the Northwest Territory. In the early 19th century French voyageurs, fur trappers, British soldiers, American pioneers and above all Indians peopled the wilderness of the Great Lakes. Come celebrate the early days of the frontier with writer, historian and pioneer Juliette Magill Kinzie!
