Post Civil War/War of Northern Aggression history was made here.
Years ago when the population of the area was higher, a lot of time and effort went into buildings and campgrounds at the site. On a much smaller scale, the area communities strive to keep everything in good repair.
This gathering is a throwback to that era. Perhaps authors might find insight to bygone times and the people who lived then.
The site is about 15 miles South of Wray, CO on Highway 385 and about 45 miles North of Burlington, CO/Interstate 70.
Burlington has an outstanding museum. Well worth a visit.
