Here’s another short article form my “Ozark Moonshine Chronicles” with Ozark County, Missouri, as its’ focus. It was a dangerous time for someone with a badge. The year…1876.
ASSASSINATEDSt. Louis May. – Information has been received here to the effect that Deputy United States Marshal B. H. Langston, of Springfield, Mo., who went down into Ozark county a few days ago on a raid after crooked distillers, was ambushed while riding along the road and riddled with bullets. He was supposed to be mortally wounded.
