Purkes to present historical program
TROY – The Troy Historical Society will observe the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 at at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, 301 W. Main St., Troy.
Local historians Karen and Terry Purke will present a program titled “Miami County in the Fall of 1812; Living in a Perilous Time.” The program will feature descriptions of Miami County as recorded by settlers themselves, a review of the events that led up to the War of 1812 and how conditions of frontier life brought both hardship and development.
The Purkes will dress in period clothing and tell their stories from the point of view of the men and women. A display of everyday implements and tools will add much to their stories. They have developed this program and others like it over the last 15 years and have participated in living history events in several states.
