The Burnt District Press has begun the campaign in the new year of 2018. Many small actions are on the schedule this year including the event at Hulston Mill in Dade County, a few one day events at Hodge Park in Gladstone, Missouri and Outlaw Days in Richmond, Missouri. The Civil War event in Waynesville, Missouri will again be held in conjunction with the Old Settler’s Days weekend. We will not be able to attend this year. The 155th at Gettysburg will be re-enacted the first weekend in July. It is a long drive for us Trans-Mississipians so we will plan to attend in 2019. On our schedule is the Lexington, Missouri weekend in October and Prairie Grove, Arkansas in December. For a partial list of the events that are happening please visit our “Events” page. If you are aware of an event not on the list please contact me and we will update the list.

The two books compiled and written by Donald Hale of Lee’s Summit, Missouri are still available. They are “They Called Him Bloody Bill” and “They Rode With Quantrill”. Also a few copies of the original “Branded As Rebels” are available. They will be available to purchase on the Internet or by calling me.

We look forward to making new friends and renewed acquaintances with old comrades during the remainder of this year.

 The stories you have are interesting and heirlooms to cherish of your family history. So come relate them to us as we enjoy talking and sharing the past with you that has brought us to the present.

If you don’t wish to wait until an event to contact us, then please write or call.
