The monument will briefly tell the history of three small battles which took place in the vicinity of Montevallo in 1862. Those three skirmishes are known locally as the battles of Montevallo, Church in the Woods, and Horse Creek.
A picnic-style lunch of hotdogs and chips will be served after the ceremony concludes. Everyone is invited to return to the Bushwhacker Museum in Nevada at 1:00PM for an open house and program about the history of Montevallo during the Civil War. The program will include a first-person portrayal of famous Vernon County “Lady Bushwhacker” and spy Rebecca Gabbert (performed by Carol Bohl of Harrisonville). For more information or to RSVP for lunch, please contact Will Tollerton at the Bushwhacker Museum (417) 667-9602 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
