Groups of Civil War re-enactors on the cannon crews gather for a night firing Saturday at Battle of Boonville. "This is my escape from corporate," said Mathew Silber, a Confederate re-enactor.

The party was just beginning for Civil War re-enactors Saturday night at the Battle of Boonville. After the Union soldiers defeated the Confederates in the historical re-enactment, the Confederates responded with their own victory in the open battle afterwards. After the crowds left, the re-enactors celebrated a successful day.
