On Friday, September 8, Dr. William J. Campbell will present the most recent findings on the treaties signed or negotiated at Fort Stanwix in the 18th Century titled “Negotiating at the Oneida Carry: The Fort Stanwix Treaties and Early North America.” Dr. Campbell, an associate professor with the Department of History at the University of Memphis, will discuss a summary of his work from 11:00 a.m. to noon in the auditorium of the Rome Historical Society.

The National Park Service funded this Historic Resource Study so that the history of the treaties could be better understood and presented to the public through special presentations, interpretive programming, and other events. “The treaties negotiated and signed at fort Stanwix are an important part of our nation’s history,” said Michelle Riter, Chief of Visitor Experiences, “We look forward to Dr. Campbell's presentation and more opportunities to share this history with the American public."

The next event taking place at Fort Stanwix National Monument is Homeschool Day, on Wednesday, September 20. A full schedule of park events can be found on www.nps.gov/fost. All park events are free.
