June 14 - 16 2022, the Town of Smithville, the Lawrence and Sharp County Historical Societies Plan to host a Civil War Weekend with a re-enactment of the Skirmish, Living History encampment, programs, and a Tactical. We plan to host a sutler and vendor village. Keynote speakers will make presentations about the Skirmish and the Civil War in Arkansas and Missouri. The Original Federal Cavalry in the Skirmish, the 5th Illinois Cavalry will be re-enacted by the 5th Illinois Cavalry (re-enacted). The Confederate Force was a single Company of 4th Cavalry 7th Division Missouri State Guard known as Coleman’s Regiment. They engaged 3 companies of the 5th. Much of the skirmish, especially by the Confederates was fought dismounted.
All branches of Reenactors, (Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, Engineer, Medical, USCT, Civilians) are invited for the living history and for the Tactical. Cavalry and Infantry only will be involved in the skirmish re-enactment.
We want to make this a premier event for 2022. The McKinney Farm where the Skirmish occurred will be recreated for the skirmish.
