Kathy “Madam Boots” Wilson, Old Boot Hill Cemetery committee chairperson will present her program on the history of Fort Sidney and Sidney’s original cemetery now known as the Old Boot Hill Cemetery on Saturday, April 18th at 1:30pm.

Madam Boots leads a group of volunteer citizens that formed a committee in 2006 who are dedicated to the restoration, recognition and preservation of Sidney’s original cemetery and the role Sidney played in the settlement of the Western Frontier since 1867.

Kathy’s PowerPoint assisted program will briefly cover some of the early Fort Sidney history, the original cemetery, Camp Lookout and other things that the committee has done, and of course the hauntings and apparitions as seen in many of the photographs taken at the cemetery.
