Oct. 22nd event

A former member
We have a meetup scheduled for Abilene, ks, but if you can't make that meetup there is an exciting event here in Kansas City:


Please join Kelly's Irish Brigade and the Westport Blue and Gray Social Society in celebration of Old Westport on Saturday, October 22, 2011. Begin the day with a tour of the 1855 Harris-Kearney House, meet the soldiers in their encampment, visit with the townsfolk of Westport around the campfire, view exhibits and watch the gunfights as the soldiers and border ruffians face each other on the Santa Fe Trail. A free family friendly event from 10:00am until 4:00pm.

At 7:30pm a Civil War Ball will be held at the Battle of Westport Visitor Center and Museum in Swope Park.

Period dress is optional and dances will be called.

Admission is a dessert to share and drinks are provided.

For more information, call 816-561-1821 or 913-648-0952

Is anyone planning on going to the Old Westport event? I think it sounds pretty interesting.
