New Event: Frontier Fourth

My Pard, Sergeant Steve, and I will be reliving the early 1800’s at Historic Arkansas Museum this July 4th.

Hawk block, target practice, longhunter, history

A ‘hawk block’ is a primitive wooden target used for knives, axes and hatchets.

We’ll be dressed as Longhunters and throwing knives and tomahawks as part of the Frontier Fourth.  Come on down and see us.  Then stay for the patriotic parade and reading of the Declaration of Independence.

See how we celebrated America’s birthday back when Arkansas was frontier territory.

About Civil War Reflections

Vernon has been a Civil War buff since childhood, but had been inactive in Civil War history for over two decades. However, in the early 1990s his interest was rekindled after watching Ken Burns’ “Civil War Documentary” on PBS. He particularly became interested in the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) and decided to learn more about this epic struggle.
