Perryville Cleanup Day 2015: Down by the Creek

In 2015, the 1st Tennessee, Co. B. returned to Perryville to continue to assist with the preparations for the 2016 event. Our mission this year was to assist with some fence removal as well as tear down 2 small outbuildings and a portion of a barn near the Bottom House. The outbuildings quickly fell, but the larger barn was a task as it was full of very heavy, wrought iron tools. The roof was also stripped from the structure for recycling. The main structure was left standing for a later date, but the open portion was removed. After this was completed, we assisted in the removal of nearly 400 foot of wire fencing along Hays Mays Road.
These elements were¬†the center point of Sunday’s battle at the event in 2016.
