Last week the site was pleased to welcome Trace Adkins, his wife Victoria, and mother Peggy. Many of you may know that Mr. Adkins (whose North Louisiana hometown is Sarepta, where Ms. Peggy is mayor) is an advocate and supporter of Civil War battlefields.
The trio thoroughly enjoyed touring our museum, where they were well-served by site Interpretive Ranger Aaron Gates. Mr. Adkins informed us that an ancestor of his fought at Mansfield, so this was more than just a casual visit!
Thank you Trace, Victoria, and Ms. Peggy for your interest and support of our site and its history!
