Any discussion on cancelling this event ? I hope not.......
I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make this event a success. The help by those behind the scenes helping to set up and tear down the entire site, the reenactors, the heritage groups and the crowds that came out in the 90+ degree heat to support the Battle of Blountville. I feel that the event was a success on many levels and am looking forward to next year. So Thank You to each and every one of you!!! YMOS, Richie Ireson
