Fun Fact about Syracuse & Onondaga County …. did you know …..

… that the Great New York State Fair started in Syracuse. New York’s very first fair (September 29-30, 1841) was located in a square bounded today by North Salina, Division, Townsend & Ash Streets with the old Onondaga County Court House serving as an exhibit hall. It was deemed a tremendous success & attracted between 10,000 & 15,000 spectators many traveling by railroad. The NYS Legislature budgeted $8,000 for the “promotion of agriculture & household manufactures in the state” through the annual fair.

Black Soldiers of New York State

SPECIAL EVENTS & AUTHORS VISITS

Thursday, May 21st, 2009
Local author, Anthony Gero to introduce his new book, Black Soldiers of New York State.
Anthony Gero, author of the new SUNY Press book Black Soldiers of New York State: A Proud Legacy, will speak about his work and sign copies of the book at Creekside. Gero, a Fellow of the Company of Military Historians, worked for more than ten years on the research for the book, trying to answer the basic question of why these African-Americans would serve a country that denied them the full rights of citizenship. “It is essentially a book about dreams,” said Gero. He also includes this quote from Martin Luther King Jr. in the book, which provides further insight: “If a man hasn’t discovered something he would die for, he isn’t fit to live.”
