It was a sunny day on March 30th for the final planning meeting with the event coordinators Karen Russo, Dave Coleman, and Jeff Wormley, military commanders Tim Perry and Chris Smith, as well as representatives from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Friends of Beaver Creek organization. Logistics and scheduling details were hammered out and the Commanders set forth the battle scenarios and historical reference for the event. Everyone is working hard to ensure a great Memorial Day weekend for both reenactors and the general public.
The Confederacy's most daring cavalrymen, John Hunt Morgan and his 2,000 raiders, crossed the entire width of Ohio from west to east before his eventual capture in July of 1863 near Beaver Creek State Park. The trunk of the tree where he surrendered has been preserved and is in the museum located at the park's Mill and Pioneer Village.
