The Guns of War!
The original battle is also knows as the Battle of Dry Fork where the first skirmish was made. The armies advanced into the town of Carthage, and moved on the eastern side of town to the area now known as Carter Park before moving on to Sarcoxie. The battle was on July 5, 1861 and the temperatures were hot and humid after days of rain.
What a wonderful year to reread Gone with the Wind and pop some corn for a night with Scarlet on a video. Will there be Civil War reenactments in your area, and do you plan to follow them?
