The Keith House is overdo for a fresh coat of paint.  OBHS will be asking for volunteers to help with a "Painting Party" later in the Spring, but for the moment, please help the board narrow down the paint color choices by telling us your opinion.  Once a color is chosen, the board will choose an appropriate shade from a historically-accurate palette.  If the color you want is not listed, please tell us your choice in the blank provided.

Memorial Building, Wed, Feb. 28, 7 pm

This talk discusses the financial hardships that the civilian population suffered during the War. There was a tremendous coin shortage at home and it made doing business extremely difficult. How did the general population get by? During the presentation, a lot of Civil War-related artifacts are passed around for the audience to see up close. Coins, bullets, grapeshot, tokens, paper scrip, and Confederate money will be available for the audience to examine. Tokens issued by some of the characters of the era will be discussed. Ever hear of Philip Best who issued a token in Milwaukee, WI? He had a pretty daughter who married a Union officer by the name Pabst! Besides Civil War jewelry and Sutler tokens, the other stories involve the unsung common soldier doing his duty for his country. 

Dana Zaiser currently holds the position of Vice President of the Old Colony Civil War Round Table of Dedham, MA (www.occwrt.org).

Over the years, he has traveled to several battlefields including Antietam and Gettysburg and has been fortunate enough to have had two award-winning articles published on the War.
