        We are a month out, and there is still room for our cap of 40 for the federal company.

          Come on out folks, this is a great event to come out to the Trans-Mississippi! We are working to make this a great event to demonstrate the end of the war in the west. We need Federals for the surrender event in the afternoon as well as confederates for the Mutiny of Hays' Division event in the morning. Not only is this one of the last 150th events it is also a way to help support Mansfield State Historic Site. The Louisiana State budget is scrapping the bottom of the barrel and a successful event my help ensure the continued operation of the site. (yes the last bit was a shameless plug). So if you're interested in coming as a federal please contact Cal Kinzer ckinzer@juno.com or Jonathan Siltman jonathan.siltman@gmail.com . If you are interested in doing Confederate contact Jason Thibodeaux - GIguy1945@aol.com (we are looking for regular, conscript, and deserter impressions).

          If you would like more information on the event or research material on the events please contact me at mansfield_int@crt.la.gov

            Bump, hey here is a great Trans-Mississippi event we are trying to do right by with a good adjunct of Federals and Rebs. Right now we are really short of good Federals, but a great opportunity to put on a quality living history, under the leadership of Cal Kinzer. Come join us!!!

              Just a two weeks away folks. Please shoot me an email at jonathan.siltman@gmail.com if you are wanting to come. This will be a great ending for the Trans-Mississippi, and we will have some awesome camp life planned between scenarios.

                Alright, I'm taking the intiative to post this image from the event this last weekend. This is an awesome image of Remnants of the 24th LA, Co.A who have surrendered to the 8th Illinios Infantry in the Shreveport area in June 1865. Taken at Surrender of the Trans-Mississippi at Mansfield State Historic Site. Image taken by Bruce R. Schultz. The participating groups included the Hellcat Mess, the 16th Louisiana making up the 24th LA Infantry and the 24th MO Infantry (US) portraying the 8th IL.Surrender at Mansfield.jpg

                  This was a great event, and if you missed it then you missed a unique impression! The weather cooperated, the reenactors were great, and most importantly the visitors to the site went away impressed and with new knowledge about an event which they knew nothing about. This event was able to inform the general public that in fact the war did not in at Appomattox in April, but in the Trans-Mississippi in June of 1865!

                  Great job to everyone in the 24th Missouri, 16th Louisiana, 11th Louisiana, Independent Rifles, and Trans-Mississippi Hellcats, y'all made the event a great success. I only wish I could have dressed out and taken part instead of being the "Park Ranger".
