The Tater Mess, a campaigner-style Civil Reenacting unit from Kansas City and environs took part in a living history at the Pea Ridge Battlefield National Historic Park on March 7, 8 and 9, 2008.

After passing a frigid night in the Leetown part of the park we marched to the Elkhorn Tavern and did marching and firing demonstrations for the public as the Missouri State Guard.

As the event was ending on Sunday I got some of my comrades to play some music. Here you see and hear Kyle Pretzl on Bones and David West on canteen half. Soldiers in the Civil War were known to make instruments with what was available, and I dug what Dave was doing.

The Grape Vine Twist was a famous banjo tune written by Joel Walker Sweeney.
