Captain's Corner 

Ladies and Gentlemen of the 3rd Missouri,

Our muster at the Atkins Johnson Farm Home and Museum is coming up on the weekend of April 13th and 14th. This will be a great opportunity to shake some rust off and come out for Friday and Saturday.  The agenda for Friday is to come and set up and Liberty is just down the road so we can go eat together as a company. Saturday we will plan to have breakfast as a company and then food for the rest of the day will be on individuals. We will drill a bit and work on simple things in  two or three brief increments throughout the day and have some down time to eat, talk, and just enjoy the weekend. The museum is hosting the second annual “Shared Stories of the Civil War” Readers Theater program at 2:00 in front of the museum. This is a free event made possible by the Kansas Humanities Council and Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area. This year’s topic is ““Pledging Allegiance: Questions of Loyalty in Civil War Kansas and Missouri.” The script is created from historical letters, diaries, newspaper articles, and other archival documents from the 1850s and 1860s. Erica is still looking for two volunteer readers for this event. If you are interested in being a volunteer reader please email Erica at ericaw@gladstone.mo.us. Howard Rollins is also putting together a presentation on the history of the 3rd Missouri throughout the war for those interested! I would highly suggest to attend! The event will wrap up sometime Saturday evening so it should be a good weekend.The address for the event is 4109 NE Pleasant Valley Road. You will have to follow detour signs to get to the Farm parking lot. Please let me know if you plan to attend!

Yours Respectfully, 

Captain B Dodson

Co. I 3rd Missouri Infantry
