The Bass Reeves Conference Committee will honor U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves on the anniversary of his death in January 1910. A special memorial event will be held on Saturday, January 12 at 3:00 p.m. at the Three Rivers Museum in Muskogee.

In period dress, re-enactors with the Bass Reeves Legacy Troupe will remember the legendary lawman who concluded his 34-year career serving as a Muskogee Police Officer. A local youth choir will provide music and a eulogy and video will celebrate his life.

This will be followed by a funeral procession from the museum to Second Street which had been Reeves’ beat while he served on the Muskogee police force. Refreshments will follow the memorial at the museum. The event is free and open to the public.

Reeves was among the first African Americans to serve as a marshal west of the Mississippi. Making over 3,000 arrests during his illustrious career marks him as one of the most successful lawmen in U.S. history.

Each year, the Conference Committee hosts the Bass Reeves Western History Conference to bring attention to this outstanding Oklahoma lawman. This year’s event will be held on July 26 and 27 in Muskogee. More information is available at bassreevesconference.com.
