Mine Creek Battlefield


Somewhere out there is apparently where it happend nearly 149 years ago.

"On October 25, 1864, on the banks of Mine Creek, two Union brigades of approximately 2,500 troops defeated approximately 7,000 Confederates from General Sterling Price's Army of Missouri. ...one of the largest cavalry battles of the Civil War and a major battle fought in Kansas." ...from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield website.


Mom was asked to come with some Kansas Native Plant Society (KNPS) info to share.







An extra windy kansas day!












Jubi photo-bombed my landscape!










Where these children find the energy to jog everywhere... I do not know.


Learned how to make and got to try some hardtack, also got to taste a little salt pork (both part of a Civil War soldier's diet). Lib took a tiny taste of the the salt port and announced "I don't like salt, and I don't like pork!" and handed her piece back to Mom. The hardtack turned out to be a little more popular.






Told Tori she was getting too far...


... not the response I was looking for.
