The 1862 Lone Jack Civil War Battle Commemoration

August 04, 2011

Every August, Lone Jack gears up for a battle! Actually, it is the 1862 Lone Jack Civil War Battle Commemoration. People come from everywhere to enjoy the festivities. Some of the activities this year include a Boy Scout pancake breakfast, a parade, craft booths, a PTA carnival, and concessions with all kinds of good food. There will be dancers, Gospel music, and several other activities. Join us for the fun on August 20th from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are a history buff (and even if you're not), you will certainly enjoy the Commemoration!

While you're in town, why not visit the Lone Jack Battlefield Museum? This museum is dedicated to sharing the story of the Battle of Lone Jack and to preserving the stories of the Missouri-Kansas Border Wars.
