9781331435556: Oswego; An Historical Address: Delivered July 15, 1896, at the Centennial Celebration of the Evacuation by the British of Fort Ontario; Oswego, New ... of the Northern Frontier to the United States

Excerpt from Oswego; An Historical Address: Delivered July 15, 1896, at the Centennial Celebration of the Evacuation by the British of Fort Ontario; Oswego, New York, and Their Surrender of the Military Posts of the Northern Frontier to the United States

The event in the history of the country commemorated here to-day well merits the marked attention it receives. The presence of these distinguished guests, the cessation of our customary employments, this procession of soldiery and citizens, the oration of a famous orator, accord with the significance of the occasion. This old town, endeared to its citizens for its native charms and for the cherished memories and associations of family and friends, happy at welcoming within its walls to-day this great company who is come hither to honor its notable career, has a horizon in history far wider than the compass of yonder lake or yonder shore.

The place and time suggest to every thoughtful mind occurrences and scenes not easily surpassed for substantial importance and striking effect. Here, in a primeval forest, long ago, an old worlds civilization met with a new worlds savagery, until the one, paling before the presence of the other, dwindled and like a spirit has passed away. Here people of different races, hostile by long tradition, came across the sea and found fresh cause of strife for supremacy. Here passed to and fro the earliest emissaries of the cross, bringing to barbaric tribes the hope of the new faith.
