At Jacksonville Military Museum Tonight

Kerry Kraus


The Jacksonville Museum of Military History  wants to know “do you believe in ghosts?” Whether you’re a believer, a skeptic or somewhere in-between, you’ll want to take in the next War Stories Lecture on Thursday, October 28.

Larry Flaxman of ARPast (Arkansas Paranormal and Anomalous Studies Team) presents the results of two paranormal investigations conducted at the state’s most famous Civil War battle sites: Pea Ridge National Military Park (photo right) and Prairie Grove Battlefield Historic State Park(photo left). The fighting at Pea Ridge left, 5,949 dead in 1962. Later that year, approximately 2,700 were killed at Prairie Grove.

The museum opens at 6 p.m. with the lecture beginning at 6:30 p.m. The doors are locked promptly at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $2. The Jacksonville Museum of Military History is located at 100 Veteran’s Circle.
