Founders and Veterans – A Salute to the Fighting Pioneers of Dallas
Speaker: John Slate, City Archivist, Dallas Municipal Archives
Join us as we celebrate Founders Day at the Dallas Historical Society with John Slate, City Archivist for the City of Dallas. Slate traces the early founders and civic leaders of Dallas who fought in conflicts ranging from the War of 1812 to the Crimean War, to the American Civil War and beyond. Using images and documents from the Dallas Municipal Archives and the Dallas Historical Society, the lives of the pioneers come alive as we honor and salute our local veterans.
