This interesting program will begin with a presentation by our staff curator on the history of the oldest cemetery in Jackson County. Information will be given on some of the notable interments including Zenus Leonard, a colorful early mountain man. Special attention will be given to the 48 United States Army soldiers who died while serving at Fort Osage during its occupation from 1808-1827. A guided tour of the cemetery concludes the program.
