Generations of the Don Carlos family have influenced the social and political landscapes of Cooper and Moniteau counties. The legacy continues through fraternal organizations, distinctive local history and the Prairie Home Fair. Dr. Christine Boston will highlight what the archaeological research and record says about the family. This presentation will draw upon the research of Lincoln University students who have been involved in the project over the past three years.
