Default Civil War Books by J. B. King

Local author J. B. King now has his civil war books on sale at the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau located next to Ruby Tuesday and the Bank of Crocker. Several more copies of “The Tilley Treasure” have been delivered to the Tourism Bureau and a large supply of JB’s newest book “Justice” are also on hand.

“The Tilley Treasure” is the true story of a real live buried treasure found on old H highway in 1962 that can be traced back to the American Civil War. This book contains a large amount of local, state and national civil war facts and drama. Until you read “the Tilley Treasure” you have no idea how busy Pulaski County was during the American Civil War. The American Civil War profoundly changed the course of Pulaski County history.

“Justice” is a Missouri history of civil war court martial’s and military tribunals that came from the collapse of the civilian legal system during the war. Both military man and civilian found themselves in front of a commission or tribunal composed of seven or so members of the Union Army to decide their guilt or innocence of the charged crime. The military system was set up to reach to the very top of the chain of command. President Abraham Lincoln usually reviewed fifty or more cases almost every day of the war and rendered a final judgment on the sentence given to the offender. “Justice” contains seven such cases that occurred in central Missouri ranging from horse stealing to murder.

If you are a civil war history buff then these are the books for you to read on the history of Pulaski County and central Missouri. You will read facts and information you have never heard of before. Take a minute to drop by the Tourism Bureau and purchase a slice of civil war history for your enjoyment.

Both books are priced at $15.00 and are available M-F 8A to 4P at the Tourism Bureau in St. Robert just east of Wal-Mart.

Default Tilley Treasure

Mr. King mentions in his book about the Williams Brothers that were shot in a cave--as a family member I would really like to know where this cave is located and if it's accessible?

No, I am staying busy with the free work for PCSD, trying to sell books, watching college softball games, loafing, reading, sleeping, eating, and in general doing what I want when I want........ The good part is now when I am working for free I can tell them that you need to speak with the sheriff. Very little stress in free.
