On Saturday, November 16, 2002,  members of Kingston, Oklahoma's Boy Scout Troop 126  participated in a clean-up day at Honey Springs Battlefield Historic Site. Seven boys from the ten-member troop camped for two nights on the Civil War battlefield in eastern Oklahoma. The scouts cleared two interpretive trails of brush and fallen limbs. They were under the supervision of maintenance supervisor Arnold Perkins, who also showed the boys several interesting battlefield sites.

A Special Thank-you to site superintendent Ralph Jones, and interpreter Howard McKinnis. Ralph allowed Troop 126 to camp on the battlefield and use of the facilities. Howard camped with the troop both nights, and gave a very informative fire-side history lesson, as well as a detailed Civil War living history demonstration.
