While traveling cross-country to see our daughter, my husband was stopping at all the old historic areas on our route! He had read that Springtimefield, MO was the origination of Route 66, which he wanted to travel to the end in addition to reach our destination.
He read that Wilson’s Creek was part of Springtimefield, MO.
He knew about Wilson’s Creek since he is a retired military in addition to a retired history teacher. He was happy to see a reenactment of the battle of Wilson’s Creek. He 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 friend and I got to Wilson’s Creek, it disappointed him they didn’t have a reenactment every year… It was late November, in addition to the weather was cool, so I didn’t mind not watching a six-hour reenactment. I preferred being in the automobile with the heat on. The park ranger told him there was an alternative, in addition to it was called “residing history”. The park volunteers in addition to staff members dress in stage clothing, have firearms, in addition to drill with them. They give soldiers life talks, however they don’t engage in simulated warfare! My husband wasn’t the happiest person, however it mollified him seeing the “residing history”. My associate and I left lovely Springtimefield, MO behind in addition to headed toward our next destination. To be honest, I didn’t mind visiting Springtimefield. It was a little too cold for my taste, however my friend and I lived in the southeast. I wasn’t used to anything colder than fifty degrees, in addition to that was in the dead of winter.
