Grave of Ogemagegato, famed Ojibway orator, lies forgotten in Roosevelt Park.
Abraham Lincoln character orates at River of Time outside Meyer log cabin in Veterans Park.
When journalists from Smithsonian Magazine arrive here later this month to cover the River of Time, they might be well advised to look around Bay City for other historical highlights.
The prestigious magazine is coming here because the River of Time, scheduled Sept. 27-28 in Veterans Memorial Park, is one of the few events in the nation that feature a panorama of history, from the French voyageurs, the Revolutionary War period Civil War, pioneers and representations by veterans of other conflicts that involved the nation.
Officials of the River of Time event and the Bay County Historical Society are pleased and flattered by this recognition from a national publication. Political and business leaders seem "underwhelmed" with little notice. . . . .
