A SUNY Oswego storytelling class will bring the tales of local historical figures to life during "A Night at the Oswego Town Rural Cemetery." 5:30 to gather, 6pm start time. Under the direction of Jonel Langenfeld of the Oswego theatre faculty, costumed performers will recount the stories of college founder Edward Austin Sheldon, Dr. Mary Walker, the local women’s rights pioneer and only woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, Underground Railroad hero Harriet Tubman, Queen Lili’uokalni Kamaka'eha, (and her Oswego connection), and many more. Admission is free for the event, which is sponsored by the Oswego Town Historical Society. This year will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Dr. Mary Walker.
