In this week’s edition of TBR Radio Presents: The Dixie Heritage Hour Dr. Ed interviews fellow TBR writer Clint Lacy.
When Clint joined Dr. Ed on the August 17th show, 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, having spent time in the Ozarks and grown 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!
