Jim Hickman helps marshal forces for this weekend’s Civil War re-enactment
Monday, April 30, 2012
It didn’t take long for Jim Hickman to become involved with Civil War re-enacting.
After being invited to come to a re-enactment in 2009, Hickman is now helping to put together one of the larger re-enactments in Missouri, which will take place this weekend at Binder Park in Jefferson City.
“In the history of the United States, outside of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War defines America,” he said. “Here in Missouri the history is rich because we had so much division. We had the third most battles and over 100,000 fought on both sides.”
Hickman serves in Collins Battery B, which is a historic unit that was part of Shelby’s Iron Brigade.
