“The McDaniel Men” – Presented by Al Morse / Hosted by Bates County Museum

The Bates County Museum invites the public to attend a special presentation on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at 10:30 am in Robertson Hall.  Guest speaker, Albert Morse will tell the extraordinary story of “The McDaniel Men,” which highlights the life and death of Charles McDaniel.  Charles grew up in Bates County and attended the Nyhart School, which now resides on the Museum’s grounds.  Al’s late wife, Dorothy, was related to Charles and the story of his remains eventually returning home to America made international headlines. This is a must-see program for anyone who has served our country, or who has family that did, particularly those who served in combat.

Al Morse was born and raised in the Foster area, graduated from Rich Hill High School, taught school, and is now an active member of the Foxwood Springs community in Raymore.  Following the program, there will be a Free Will Donation Luncheon served.  Join us for this remarkable presentation that will be both educational and entertaining!
