World War I is still going on 100 years ago. The Brockport newspaper ran a list of men that have joined the military. The US has only been in the fight for 3 months so none of the area men have been sent overseas as of yet.
I cheated on the ad. It was from the Catholic Journal. How could I resist a play with actual Native Americans telling a story of their people. I am not sure if this play was based on Longfellow’s poem, “The Song of Hiawatha” or the real person that was a co-founder of the Iroquois Confederacy. I would think that the play was based on the poem.
