150 years ago this week, Union troops settled in Springfield during the Civil War. Now a local foundation wants to commemorate them by honoring their courageous efforts. KSMU’s Scott Butler has more.
I’m here at the corner of National and Trafficway, where Saturday, Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield Foundation is hosting a Civil War encampment and drill. This event is celebrating the 150thanniversary of the arrival of the first army to occupy Springfield during the Civil War. This free event will start at 10 a.m.
