Hulston Mill's Civil War Days
We traveled to the area between Greenfield and Everton, Missouri this weekend to attend Hulston Mill's Civil War Days. I thought I would start the short series off with a shot of the old mill itself which was relocated to this site from the Sac River when Stockton Lake was built. It is old and need repairs but has almost all the equipment to become fully operational. It just needs money. I can't swear to it but I believe the gentleman giving tours of the mill said that the mill was actually operational until 1967.
The mill was the site of a fairly large civil war re-enactment this weekend. I will be presenting a few shots from that over the next couple of days. As hard to believe as it is, my favorite shots are of the people up close and personal. They are so passionate about what they do it is contagious. I really enjoyed taking their pictures.
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
