Heritage Trail Partners Civil War Event

Heritage Trail Partners will present “Bullets, Ballads, and Bandages: Civilians and Soldiers in the Civil WarOzarks,” an afternoon of activities at Prairie Grove Battlefield Historic State Park , Saturday, June 26, from noon to 3:30 p.m. 

 

Independent researcher Steve Burgess will discuss the Battle of Cane Hill at noon. At 1:15 p.m., a concert of Civil War-era music will be performed by the Back Porch Players.  Living history professional Doug Kidd will present “The Life of a Civil War Surgeon” at 2:30 p.m.  Members of the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History’s living history group will be on hand throughout the afternoon portraying Ozark folks during the Civil War.  All activities are free.

 

Heritage Trail Partners is a non-profit organization dedicated to documenting and preserving the history of roads and trails in western Arkansas associated with the Trail of Tears (1837-1839), the Butterfield Stage (1858-1861), and Civil War troop movements (1861-1865).  “Our vision is to utilize historic roadways as a part of a regional network of bicycle and walking trails.  The Heritage Trail will link Northwest Arkansas cities in a unique way, connecting them through the historic events of the 1800s,” said John McLarty, president of Heritage Trail Partners.  He added, “We offer public programs such as “Bullets, Ballads, and Bandages” as a way to educate the public not only about local history, but about the Heritage Trail project.”
