MESS NO. 1 EVENT - ADVANCE ON FORT HENRY
Advance on Fort Henry was hosted by Mess No. 1 at Land Between the Lakes, Dover, Tennessee. This event was part campaign and part living history as we re-traced the movements of the 31st Illinois leading up to the Battle of Fort Henry. The Confederates portrayed the 4th Mississippi.
