Then they had folks dressed up like historical people talking about their role in the battle. We wandered around some looking at grave markers and osage oranges and irises. They've done a great job cleaning everything up and discovering where all the bodies in the cemetery are.
But the thing that was, to me, most heartening was seeing all the people from the Buchanan Log Home (not the same Buchanan family) and Mansker's Station also there. A lot of people in Nashville really love our deep and interesting history. But you know, it'd be easy enough to imagine a scenario in which people associated with other historical sites might be less then helpful to folks.
We're really lucky to have a historical community that is so generous with each other and is eager to expand what is known about and protected.
