The State Historian of Texas, Bill O’Neal of Carthage, will lead a three-hour history conference Saturday titled "Gunfights and Blood Feuds of Old East Texas." O’Neal has written numerous books on frontier violence and he finds that there’s broad appeal, from the Regulator-Moderator War to the murderous bank robbery in Longview by the Dalton Gang. He wants conference goers to learn how the dust finally settled.
