Shortly after the War ended the soldiers of the Civil War began to
hold reunions all across the country.  The men who fought at Lone
Jack held their first reunion on August 16, 1867.  This reunion,
however, was held only for the Federal soldiers.  
Soon they put aside their differences and both Federal and
Confederate soldiers attended.
As the old soldiers passed on, it became a celebration of their
heroism and a memorial to their sacrifice.
The town of Lone Jack still holds that celebration on the weekend
closest to the anniversary of the battle.
In this section, you will find news reports from various newspapers  
regarding the reunions dating from the earliest in 1867 and moving  
onward, as well as articles regarding men who fought here.

You will also find articles dating from 1862
from newspapers across the country telling
about the Battle of Lone Jack, Jackson
County, Missouri ~ August 16, 1862.
