The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library continues its “Lunch in the Library” series with living historian Marc Ferguson as famed buffalo hunter Billy Dixon at 12 noon, Wednesday, Nov. 3.
Dixon gained fame as a hunter and scout, but was probably best remembered for what happened in 1874 at the Battle of Adobe Walls. As part of a small trading community in the Texas panhandle, Dixon was one of 29 people who held off an attack of 700 Plains Indian warriors. Dixon was also one of only eight civilians in U.S. history to receive the Medal of Honor.
Bring your own lunch and the library will provide the drinks and cookies! Those in attendance will have a chance to win tickets to the Dalton Gang hideout in Meade.
