Las Mariposas CIVIL WAR DAYS 2009 : Hello Re-enactors,

Welcome to my website.  I hope you enjoy the photos!!! The printed photos have to be a specific size due to the 'frames' that border them (5x7, 10x14, or 4x5, 8x10...depending on the photo).  However, I can make the photos any size (or without a border) if I know which picture is desired.  Each photo has a corresponding number. Just scroll to the right of the photo (click on the letter 'i' for information) and you will see the photo information , including its number.  Email me and let me know which photo you want and how you want me to customize it.  There is no extra charge to customize a photo.  I do not recommend the option of Color Correction!!  ALSO... Check out the merchandise. Makes great gifts!!!  You may contact me at redlandsgal@verizon.net.   
Thanks!
Terrie

Battle of Athens State Historic Park, MO (1-3-11) : Today's Athens, Missouri is nothing more than a loosely clustered mix of farms and riverfront homes, with nothing but a small, virtually unknown, state park bearing its name to draw anyone's Attention to it on a map.  At the outbreak of the Civil War the town was a bit larger and was a fairly important town in the region.  A small but growing town in 1861, Athens was home to a large grist mill and the only ferry to allow passage across the Des Moines River for quite a distance in either direction.  Like the rest of Missouri, loyalties at the outbreak of war were sharply divided and it became a target for Union loyalists in neighboring Iowa.  Seeking to suppress southern sympathies in the region and gain control of the ferry, which provided the most direct line of supply from nearby Keokuk, a small band of some 500 local militia under command of Colonel David Moore moved in and occupied the town on  July 22, 1861.

A secessionist force of around 2,000 had already been assembled under Colonel Martin Green and soon moved out to dislodge the Yankees from Missouri.  They arrived on the outskirts of Athens on August 4, 1861 with three cannon.  The federals were surrounded in the town on three sides with the Des Moines River to their backs.  The attack came with first light on the 5th.  Though outnumbered nearly 4 to 1, the federal militia managed to repel the two hour rebel attack, largely due to their superiority in firearms.  The federals held the town and, as such, northeastern Missouri remained in Union hands for the entirety of the Civil War.

Today, a small Historic State Park preserves the surviving buildings that existed at the time of the battle.  This park is much different from more well-known parks farther east.  A small room at the main office holds a few artifacts and important info on the battle and the only other displays to be found are at the Thome-Benning, or Cannonball House, which still bears a large scar from the battle.  Aside from this the grounds are open and quiet, at least when I visited, which contrasts pleasantly with larger, busier battlefields.  Here's the tour...
