Jurisdiction and Judgment Lecture Series
March 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$10
The United States Marshals Museum, with support from the Triple-S Alarm Company of Little Rock, will live stream its upcoming spring lecture series for the first time ever. In celebration of the Fort Smith Bicentennial, the museum will also offer the three-part series, Jurisdiction and Judgment: Fort Smith Marshals in Indian Territory, free of charge to all in-person attendees.
The series will begin on March 5 with a presentation by Cherokee Nation Marshal Shannon Buhl on the history of Native American tribal law enforcement and their interactions with the U.S. Marshals. On April 2, author Art Burton will delve into the story of Cherokee Bill, one of the most famous outlaws hanged at the Fort Smith gallows. The third, and final, discussion by Rick Parker on May 7 will focus on the tragedy at Goingsnake.
Each lecture will run from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at The Blue Lion at UAFS Downtown at 101 North 2nd Street. Due to space constraints, attendees are encouraged to register through Eventbrite or call the museum office at 479-709-3766. Heavy hors d’oevres will be served, and a cash bar will be available.
