Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them. Chelsea Coming back home was supposed to be normal. Not that my life had ever been normal, but it was getting there. Then I opened the door and found a man-broken, bloodied, and fighting for his life. I don't know why, but I said I would take care of him. I had to. Needed to. He was a mystery, showing up from out of nowhere. But he might have already stolen my heart. Mayson Carey The only thing I have ever wanted in my entire life was to forget who I was. Joining the military helped me do this. Keep your head down and glide through life was my new motto. No strings, no relationships. Nothing. Everything was working until a knock at the door had me face-to-face with the reason I was running. So I ran-I fell into her arms, and she fell into my heart, but I know better than to think it'll last. Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.

The counties along the Missouri and Mississippi River Valleys have come to be known as Missouri's Little Dixie. These counties had a high slave population prior to the Civil War due to the settlers coming from the Upland Southern slave states of North Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee; bring their slave with them. Today the African-American population in these counties has significantly decreased yet this community had a large impact on the area that can be seen in the resources left behind. This region has a unique history that is important to the National story. In this thesis a Feasibility Study for a National Heritage Area is conducted in order to determine if Missouri's Little Dixie meets the qualifications set out by the National Park Service for designation.
