Dan Clark and Shirley Calvert talk about Christmas and family. Dan reads "The First Christmas Tree" by Shirley's father, William D. Randall (Little Known Stories of Muscatine, Vol. 4). Next, Dan speaks with archaeologist Steve Hanken about John Brown's last trip across Iowa 150 years ago. After "liberating" slaves in Missouri (Dec. 20, 1858), Brown led a dramatic Underground Railroad trek to a real train car in West Liberty and on toward freedom. The saga continues over coming weeks as we track Brown's party into southeast Nebraska and across Iowa.
