March Lecture – A Soldier’s WWII Experiences

Keith Davis 006

F. Keith Davis will be presenting the March lecture for the Springville Historical Society on Wednesday evening, March 27th at 7:00 p.m. in the Youth Gallery of the Springville Museum of Art.  Mr. Davis served with the 16th Field Artillery Observation Battalion, part of the American forces who battled German troops across Europe during World War II. He will recount his experiences at the Battle of the Bulge and an especially moving first-hand account of  arriving at the Ohrdruf concentration camp, the first to be liberated by American forces.

This promises to be one of the highlights of this season’s lecture series and an opportunity to hear from one of the eyewitnesses to these momentous events that are part of our nation’s history.
