Historic Oxford Schoolhouse presents a performance of
Border War Reflections by Stephanie Goodman
The docents of the Historic Oxford Schoolhouse will host a program on Saturday, August 11th beginning at 10:00 am at the Historic Oxford Schoolhouse located in Ironwoods Park at 147th & Mission Road, Leawood, Kansas 66224.
Stephanie Goodman performs this heart-breaking story of two women on the opposite sides of the slavery issue. Goodman has written this historically accurate script based on first person accounts of two women from 1854 to 1863.
In 1855 Julia L. Lovejoy, an abolitionist from New Hampshire, moved to the Kansas Territory to fight the tyranny of slavery while Margaret Watts Hays, a Missourian with roots in Kentucky, started a family on a farm in Jackson County.
The raw emotion of two women on the opposite side of the slavery issue will move attendees through the performance of Goodman, who portrays both women. This presentation, both informative and entertaining, will surely be unforgettable.
The Oxford School docents encourage history buffs and anyone curious about the border conflict and its effect on everyone, including the female population, to visit the Oxford Schoolhouse and enjoy this free presentation on August 11th.
Reservations are not necessary. For more information please phone at 913-339-6700 x157.
