At 7 p.m. on May 13th, The Lee County Historical and Genealogical Society will present a program entitled “Prairie Pirates” by Heinz Supan, a noted historian from Ottawa, Illinois.
He will speak on the Banditti of the Prairie, a lawless gang that sowed chaos in our area as they rustled horses, cattle and robbed banks and businesses in the 1800’s. .
The program will be held at the Society office at 113 S. Hennepin Avenue in Dixon. There is ample parking across the street for your convenience and the public is invited to attend. There is no fee. We look forward to seeing you.
