(May 2010) Enlarge Blackberries at Blakely

If you look closely at the photos taken May 30, 2010 you will notice wild blackberries. Also worthy of mentioning the wooden portions of CSA Redoubt #4 are reproductions, not original wood, which have been left to nature

(May 2010) Enlarge Missouri Monument at Blakely

On the road going from the Blakely Historic Park entrance to the recreation areas and battlefield, the old city cemetery for Blakely is a stop on the Old Blakely Road. There are only a few grave markers in a large field, but there is a small cluster of stone crosses with no names or identification in the field

Across the street, however, there is a clearing with a monument to Missouri troops who fought in the April 9, 1865 battle
