My old hometown is getting into the act! Fort Recovery OH (site of St. Clair's defeat in the Indian wars after the Revolutionary War) is having its first Civil War Days 10-12 September 2010 at Ambassador Park. The plan is to include battle reenactments, artillery night fire, a Civil War Grand Ball, vintage baseball game, military drills, and other demonstrations. It was recently announced in the Celina (OH) Daily Standard Newspaper. The organizers are coordinating efforts from all over Indiana and Ohio. Ambassador Park used to host National Tractor Pulling Events that pulled in big crowds. I believe it is nearly as large as the area where a couple of the Gettysburg Anniversary events have been held. Here is the website.
I'll give you one guess where I plan to be that weekend.
