Sat., September 29, 3:00pm: "Victory on a Sea of Oil: World War I & the El Dorado Oilfield"

Bringing to life the chaos and bustle of the 1910s oil patch, this talk will describe the role played by the newly-opened El Dorado field in the WWI war effort. Due to the sheer amount of oil flowing from this one 34-square mile field -- oil which was then used to fuel trucks, ships, and airplanes, lubricate machine parts, make rubber tires, and more -- it was said that the Allies in this first mechanized war "floated to victory on a sea of oil." Come hear how it all happened!
