Fort Smith, AR --(Ammoland.com)- The U.S. Marshals Museum has announced a four-part lecture series showcasing western-era guns and their famous owners.

The Old West and Indian Territory days are an era ingrained in the American imagination, and no single item represents this period more than the gun.

“Guns were a crucial part of the development and history of our country and the West specifically,” said Jim Dunn, President and CEO, U.S. Marshals Museum.

“These items were more than just legendary weapons, they were important tools that helped shape the history of our nation.”

Admission is $10 per lecture, or $25 for the series, which also includes a commemorative monograph. The Monograph alone will be available for $15. At each event, light refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.
