Upcoming Talk on Albany's German Community & WWI

On 5 February 2017, 2 PM, at the Wyman Osterhout Community Center in New Salem, the New Scotland Historical Association is sponsoring a historical talk on World War I and Albany's German community. The program will be given by myself, Christopher White.

Stop by to learn about Albany's once vibrant German community. In Albany, Germans were the largest ethnic group second to the Irish. Today, Albany's German community and history is culturally invisible compared to it's heyday during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. What happened?

The Osterhout Community Center is located in New Salem just before the hill heading up to Thatcher Park. For more information please check the New Scotland Historical Association's web page. Below is a flyer created and provided by the NSHA.
