In this week's edition of TBR Radio Presents: The Dixie Heritage Hour, Dr. Ed interviews fellow TBR writer Clint Lacy.
On the August 17th show Clint was the guest, and the discussion centered around Clint's book: Blood in the Ozarks. In today's conversation Ed and Clint talk about the infamous Baldknobbers, an Ozark-based Yankee-led criminal group that terrorized the now Branson-area in the period immediately following the War Between the States.
Both share anecdotes from their childhoods.
Spending time in the Ozarks and grew up hearing the stories about the Baldknobbers. As adults, research would uncover that the truth was far more grizzly than the legend.
Clint even likens Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Foghorn Leghorn!
