Wilson's Creek 150th Reenactment August 14th

Union forces.

12 pounder called "Thunder". This gun shook my teeth!

View of the assault on bloody hill.

View from behind the Missouri lines.

To our right was the confederate artillery.

Out front was the Federals on the far hill.

Confederates moving into line.

Pre battle muster.

Total tourist. I bought the caps at Gettysburg and my son Aaron and I wore them to root for our favorite side. Here we pose before a confederate gun. Got the tourist program, and t-shirt along with a bullet from Stones River battlefield.

Had a really great day with my family and enjoyed the event.
