Zachary Jones, a historian and archivist for Sealaska Heritage Institute, will be in Wrangell this week to talk to the public about his ongoing research to document the 1869 Battle of Wrangell.
The conflict between U.S. Army soldiers stationed at Fort Wrangell and the local Tlingit Indians is being studied by Jones through the support of SHI and a National Park Service American Battlefield Preservation Program grant.
Jones will give a public presentation about his research at the Wrangell Museum at 7 pm, Wednesday, Sept. 19.
The public is invited to attend and participate--Jones is seeking to record oral histories of those in Wrangell willing to speak about the 1869 conflict.
