February 18
Dutton S. Peterson Library History Talk with Schuyler County Historian Gary Emerson, 10 a.m., in the Odessa Fire Hall. Topic: Civil War Medicine. Hollywood would have us think that Civil War medicine was largely about amputated limbs and gangrene. The real story is that Civil War medicine brought important changes still used today in evaluating battlefield injuries and evacuating the wounded. Much was learned about surgery, hospitals, and caring for wounds that carried over into civilian life after the war. Come learn about the myths and realities of Civil War medicine and how it transformed medical care in America.

March 18
Dutton S. Peterson Library History Talk with Schuyler County Historian Gary Emerson, 10 a.m., in the Odessa Fire Hall. Topic: DCCC Camps in Schuyler County. During the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps was created to provide work to unemployed young men. Schuyler County had four CCC camps that worked to plant trees, promote soil conservation, and build parks for recreation. This presentation will use maps, photos, and newspaper articles to tell the interesting story of the CCC camps in Schuyler County, whose work can still be seen today. The CCC not only changed the landscape, but it changed the men who served as well.

April 15
Dutton S. Peterson Library History Talk with Schuyler County Historian Gary Emerson, 10 a.m., in the Odessa Fire Hall. Topic: The Seneca Lake Monster. In 1900, a Seneca Lake steamboat struck something quite large in the lake. Passengers on board said it was a large serpent-like creature. Since then, there have been many sightings of the Seneca Lake Monster. Is there a large creature lurking under the waves of Seneca Lake? Come learn about the many sightings, as well as a few hoaxes, that keep the legend of the Seneca Monster alive.
