Having just returned from my annual Autumn visit to Northwestern Arkansas - the reason that last week there was NO Throwback Thursday - I thought it was appropriate to revisit an October 6&7, 1980 living history event held at Prairie Grove State Park near Fayetteville. Above, I'm seated outside one of our wall tents in the battery camp shown in the photo below, writing a period-style letter to a pen pal. (Which I actually later mailed to her!) For additional photos of this event held in conjunction with the Confederate Guard infantry company, please see:

Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementoes, or memorabilia from reenactments, living history or other events or vacation or other travel they would like to share with us is welcome and encouraged to do so in this (usually) weekly thread!
