  • The grounds of the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center will be taken over by Civil War reenactors the weekend of Sept. 22 and 23.
    Reenactors from the “Rough Rider” group of Northeast Missouri will be on hand each day to provide first and third person interpretation of the life of those who lived through the war. Stop by and see their encampment, view their period equipment and ask questions about the experiences of the people of the era.
    A series of panels discussing the impact of the Civil War in Missouri, on temporary loan from the Museum of Missouri Military History in Jefferson City, will be available for viewing inside the Visitor Center. There will also be a life sized replica of a Union soldier from the Salt River Navigation Company of Florida, Mo., on hand.
    For information, contact the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at (573) 735-4097 or e-mail marktwaininfo@usace.army.mil .
