Baxter Co. Historical Society - Brooks Blevins
Tuesday, July 25, 2017

 "Murder, Mayhem, and Northern Arkansas's Civil War that Refused to End" by Brooks Blevins will be the topic of the next Baxter County Historical & Genealogical Society meeting on Tuesday, July 23 at 6:00 p.m. in the Knox Room of the Donald W. Reynolds’ Library.  The presentation is about the 1868 murder of Fulton County's Freedmen's Bureau agent and the mini Civil War that broke out afterwards. Baxter Co. was still part of Fulton Co. at that time, and the men accused of the murder lived in what is now Baxter Co.

Brooks Blevins is a historian and the Noel Boyd Professor of Ozarks Studies at Missouri State University in Springfield. A native of Izard County, he has authored five books and edited two others. Among his books are Hill Folks: A History of Arkansas Ozarkers and Their ImageArkansas/Arkansaw: How Bear Hunters, Hillbillies, and Good Ol’ Boys Defined a State; and Ghost of the Ozarks: Murder and Memory in the Upland South. His next book, The Old Ozarks – which is the first volume in a trilogy on the history of the Ozarks – will be released by the University of Illinois Press in the spring.

The Baxter County Historical & Genealogical Society meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Donald W. Reynolds Library at 300 Library Hill in Mountain Home.  All meetings are free and open to the public.
