Lucille Taulbee, wife of Paul Taulbee passed away June 9. Visitation is Tuesday, June 11, from 6-8 pm at Maggard's Mountain View Chapel. The funeral will be Wednesday, June 12, at 12 pm at the same location.
Paul is one of the originators of the Battle of Leatherwood reenactment, and long-time Board member. We extend our condolences to Paul and his family.
Dr. Marion Miniard presented the deed for the upper portion of the battlefield to Perry County at the May meeting of the Perry County Fiscal Court. Dr. Miniard is one of the most community-minded individuals in the county, and has greatly improved the Cornettsville area.
Judge Noble accepted the deed on behalf of the Fiscal Court. We appreciate their support for the reenactment and developing the Brashearville facility.
We have a walking track around the battlefield. It follows the creek from the swinging bridge to the cane field, goes around the cane field to the flat, and along the road on the upper side back to the buildings. This is our scenic route for people who do not want to walk on asphalt.
We planted twenty rows of cane on the battlefield. We have other fields
on Mace's Creek, and hope for a good crop this year. Our Stir-Off is
scheduled for Oct. 12.
We are the cut stone kings of Cornettsville! We are cleaning and sizing cut stone to build a blacksmith shop and other uses. This will be a nice addition to the grounds.
Our next Board meeting will be held July 21, 2013 at 3 pm at the General Store.
