Subject: RE: A fine time was had at Bent's Old Fort
Ayep they are having their Santa Fe Trail event again. That is where Colonel Kearny came through with the Army of the West just before they crossed the Arkansas River to invade Mexico during the U.S.-Mexican War. The event will run from Friday through Sunday, Aug. 1st through 3rd. I will be there as a Missouri Volunteer with the Army Dragoons. I'll also be playing music in the courtyard on fiddle and banjo. Come out if you can.
