Can't say I was at the reenactment... it has been many moons since I did any reenacting, but I'm glad it was a good event for you! Wilson's Creek and Perryville are my two favorite small battlefields. Both are in excellent condition and well interpreted. I led my Squadron officers on a tour of Wilson's Creek back in 2006 and had a great time doing that.
And just to show how much the ACW is engrained in my subconscious, I was at home with an illness a couple of weeks back and randomly decided to watch August light again. Afterwards I realized it was the anniversary of Wilson's creek...totally unintentional...gave me goosebumps.
I am shocked that there were over 3,000 reenactors participating in Wilson's Creek, and untold numbers of spectators at that event, yet I seem to be the only memeber of this group that went there.....It saddens me that so many people participated in Wilson's Creek and went as spectators and yet do not yet know of, or use, this website. It is such a GREAT resource with fantastic, insightful and thoughtful discussions and news items!!!
Thanks, Javal!!!.....Anyone I meet at an event, I tell them about CWI!!!
I do appreciate that Albert. I feel guilty that due to health problems, my workday has dropped from 12 hours a day to 6 or 7. Plus CWi is now a one-man show since Laurie works full-time elsewhere. But I'll keep slogging along. Thanks again....
