Yesterday, I posted twice about the Civil War in Springfield, Missouri, and cannons and schools named for people from that war. As all you 66ers know, Springfield is one of the two Springfield's we have on the Mother Road.
The Route 66 Association of Missouri's 2011 Motor Tour in September will be focused on that event.
