For a hauntingly spookactular time, the Lone Jack Historical Society invites children
of all ages to join the 10th annual Walk with Civil War Spirits.
If you dare, come visit the spirits on Halloween, October 31, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
The walk takes place on the Lone Jack Civil War Museum and Cemetery grounds, 301 S. Bynum, Lone Jack. The first tour starts promptly at 7:00 as we call on the spirits to join us.
Follow your guide’s footsteps back in time on this hallowed ground where men fought and died 150 years ago.
Listen as the spirits of those who became embroiled in the conflict recount their stories. Mary Rucker, whose husband died from wounds received in the battle, will be our spirit guide as she calls on others to tell their stories.
See the battle through the eyes of spirits William M. Lowe and Elmer Thayer. Listen as Nancy Cave tells her tragic story while obeying Ewing’s Order #11.
Gather around Granny Brown as she tells her story. Perhaps we can raise Laura Flanery to tell us of her experiences walking to Texas following Order #11.
Oooh, was that the night wind or a spirit’s caress on your cheek? Was that light a guide’s lantern or a soldier’s ghostly figure gliding past the tree? It’s enough to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
No tricks, just treats await children and adults. Dress for the weather. The spirit walk and museum are free, but donations to the museum are appreciated. The all-volunteer Lone Jack Historical Society is the sole manager for day-to-day operations of the museum. Help us keep the doors open.
