GATHERING AT FIVE MEDALS

October 20-21, 2018 | Goshen, Indiana

Music by Hillary and Rick Wagner. 

Step back in time.

In the wild prairies and forests nestled beside the Elkhart River, the people gathered. They spoke in different tongues - the languages of the Potawatomi, Colonial French, and the diverse dialects of settlers from northern lands. 

Some would battle for the land, with the roar of flintlock and cannon fire ringing out through the prairie. Others would come for trade, exchanging furs, handmade wares, wool, and treasures from their homelands. 

All would leave with stories that would piece together the history and rich heritage of Northern Indiana.
