(6:00 PM - 7:30 PM)

Local author Harold Morgan will discuss his most recent research on Evansville’s founding in 1812, an event commemorated throughout the city this year with special events. Harold’s research took him to several locations around the Tri-State as he sought to uncover more information about the obscure life of Hugh McGary, who is regarded as Evansville’s founder. When and why did McGary leave Evansville, and where did he go? When did he die, and where is he buried? These are some of the questions the speaker will address. If you are an Evansville history buff, you won't want to miss this!
