This past weekend Chance and I drove to Lone Jack, Missouri for a Civil War reenactment. It's been 150 years since the battle of Lone Jack so it was a more popular year.
Lone Jack is near Lee's Summit which is a big city compared to Lone Jack's small town. I was not able to participate personally in the reenactment so I stayed in a hotel and Chance camped.
Chance is a Union Private and was all dressed and ready to fight!
Needless to say it was very exciting! The cannons were really loud, they accidentally broke a window in the house because of the cannon's effect. Chance fought most of the battle but ended up "dying" in the end.
There were tons of people there but I was able to get there early and hold my spot and I knew the battle plans before they played out! That is a perk that comes with being the wife of a Union Private!
It is a beautiful place that reminded me a bit of Kentucky with the trees, fields, and fences.
Hopefully the next reenactment I will be able to dress up and play a part as well!
