THE CIVIL WAR IN JASPER COUNTY

Over the next two weeks, in observance of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Joplin Globe will publish a series of stories written by area historians about events leading up to the attack on a foraging party of black soldiers at Rader’s farm in Jasper County on May 18, 1863, and the burning of Sherwood the next day by Union soldiers.
