Prairie Heritage Center to Host OJ Fargo with Veteran’s Day Program

November 14 @ 7:00pm

The O’Brien County Conservation Board is pleased to host Humanities Iowa Speaker, OJ Fargo in “Just Before the Battle Mother – A Visit from a Civil War Soldier”.  Remember Veteran’s Day from a different viewpoint in history as Mr. Fargo dresses in full Union Army regalia and focuses the first person presentation on an individual Iowa soldier’s Civil war experience.

After a brief overview of the state’s involvement, the audience is introduced to a returning Civil War veteran, played by OJ Fargo.  He will detail the experiences of an Iowan during the conflict.  During and after the presentation, the audience is encouraged to ask questions and engage in a dialogue with a “soldier” who stays in character.

Fargo will also bring an artifact display and full electronic civil war roster of all men who served in and from Iowa.  This is a Veteran’s Day program that you won’t want to miss.

“A Visit from a Civil War Soldier” will be presented on Thursday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m. at the Prairie Heritage Center, 4931 Yellow Avenue.  For more information, contact the O’Brien County Conservation Board at 712-295-7200.
