The Smithville branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library is hosting an exciting and informative program. “It’s going to be right after the civil war ended,” Atchison explained the time frame that will be discussed during the evening’s presentation, “In Missouri there was a lawlessness which was continued by the ex-confederate soldiers, Frank and Jesse James. We are going to be looking farther into that exciting part of our local history.”

Gregg Higginbotham will lead attendees through a history lesson unlike any other. “Our presenter has been doing this for almost 30 years,” said Atchison “He’s a really great presenter. He knows his stuff, has a passion for it, and he’s just really very interesting to listen to.”

The Thursday evening program is slated to get underway at 7 p.m. at the Smithville location. For more information or for question, call Leslie Atchison at 816-532-0116.
