Learning Civil War History through reenactments

I just made plans to attend the Old Settlers Day and Civil War Reenactments in Waynesville, Missouri, on July 30-31.

The reenactment is a first for the event and promises to be educational. Visitors will be able to check out Cavalry and Infantry drill demonstrations, weapons and artillery inspections, period dance and music, a period Church service and more.

Interested in the pre-Civil War years? The Kickapoo Trace Muzzleloaders will have a pre-1840 encampment that pays tribute to the mountain men pioneers. Festival goers will have the opportunity to black powder shoot, throw tomahawks, practice fire starting and attend trapping, dutch over cooking and blacksmithing exhibits.

It's the kind of festival that will attract kids of all ages. Sounds like a great event to learn and experience a part of our American history.

If you've not been to Waynesville, it's on I-44 midway between Lebanon and Rolla.
