KC History: Forgotten Tales of Missouri

4735 FT MO_20aba0585fdd40372536b0120c770c64.jpg

Coming up on Central Standard Friday, join host Monroe Dodd for a history of the Show Me State rarely shown, including the chamber pot war of 1812, Long’s Dragon Boat, and wind wagon technology from 1846.

We speak with Mary Collins Barile, author of Forgotten Tales of Missouri, about how sometimes a true history can prove stranger than legend.
