Park Day To Honor Veterans

Linda Barta
Secretary, LJ Historical Society

On August 16, 1862, Union soldiers and local Confederate recruits battled one another in the thriving town of Lone Jack. Following the battle, soldiers on both sides who gave their last full measure were laid to rest beneath this hallowed battlefield ground. With this honor, Lone Jack is one of a handful of Civil War battlefields in the nation.

Join the Lone Jack Historical Society on April 6 along with more than 150 historical battlefield sites across the nation as we offer volunteers the chance to honor veterans.
