SIOUX CITY -- Performer and world traveler Michael McDonald will be presenting "Robert V. Carr: Poet of the Seth Bullock Brigade" as a Betty Strong Encounter Center program at 2 p.m. Sunday at facebook.com/sclandc.
Robert V. Carr was a veteran of the Spanish-American War with the South Dakota First Battalion, serving in the Pacific Theatre (Philippines). He was the official poet of the Seth Bullock Brigade -- a bunch of cowboys from the Black Hills region who took their ponies and saddles on an eastbound train and rode in Teddy Roosevelt's inauguration parade.
A presenter for both Humanities Nebraska and the South Dakota Humanities Council speakers bureaus, McDonald has performed all over the globe.
