The Harpe Brothers and other historic outlaws topic of January Museum Moments with Zack Stewart
Outlaws, robbers, killers have always held a morbid fascination for many. And as this region and area surrounding the Natchez Trace was evolving at the end of the 17th century and early 1800s, outlaws were a real and present danger to travelers as well as the pioneer residents.
Come to the Union County Museum at noon on Thursday, Jan. 17, as Zack Stewart, former Northern District Highway Commissioner, tells the history of some of the more famous outlaws, including the Harpe Brothers, America’s first serial killers, and how they are connected to the North Mississippi area. With so few roadways and areas of transportation, the Natchez Trace was the predictable route of many travelers who carried valuables and who were ripe for the picking of the feared outlaws. The Harpe Brothers brought about a reign of terror that ended with a dramatic chase, that you can learn more about at Museum Moments. A light lunch will be served beginning at 11:30. For more information call the museum at 662-538-0014.
