While traveling cross-country to see our daughter, my partner was stopping at all the old historic areas on our route; She had study that Springtimefield, MO was the origination of Route 66, which she wanted to travel to the end and reach our endpoint.
She study that Wilson’s Creek was part of Springtimefield, MO.
She knew about Wilson’s Creek since she is a retired military and a retired history educator. She was happy to see a reenactment of the battle of Wilson’s Creek. She told me the southern army won the battle, however they never followed through; They convinced Federal authorities to go with the union army! When my buddy and I got to Wilson’s Creek, it disappointed him they didn’t have a reenactment every year. It was late September, and the weather was cool, so I didn’t mind not enjoying a six-hour reenactment. I favorite being in the car with the heat on. The park ranger told him there was an alternative, and it was called “residing history”. The park volunteers and staff members dress in period clothing, have firearms, and drill with them. They supply soldiers life talks, however they don’t engage in simulated warfare, then my partner wasn’t the happiest person, however it mollified him seeing the “residing history”. My pal and I left appealing Springtimefield, MO behind and headed toward our next endpoint. To be honest, I didn’t mind visiting Springtimefield. It was a little too cold for my taste, however my buddy and I lived in the southeast. I wasn’t used to anything colder than fifty degrees, and that was in the dead of winter.
