Event description

Description

The Jackson County Historical Society plans to reenact the retrial of Bill "Whiskeyhead" Ryan and his involvement in the 1881 robbery of an Alton & Chicago train about five miles east of Independence at the Glendale Station. It is equally a story about the end of the Jesse James gang.

This event is based on extensive research by local historian Ralph Monaco and will feature many members of the Jackson County legal community and other historic reenactors.

The public performance will take place in the actual courtroom where the case was first heard in September 1881.

Space is limited for the performance in the historic Brady Courtroom in the Truman Courthouse on the Independence Square. Tickets are $10. All proceeds benefit the Jackson County Historical Society.

Jackson County Historical Society is pleased to organize and sponsor this event.
