Atoka Museum & Confederate Cemetery
Hey guys, Callie here again! School is in full swing and it's got Penny and I thinking about how much fun we had last summer. We still have a few adventures left to cover and we wanted to share one with you today... along with some news!
Last year, my aunt and uncle went on a vacation and our cousins came to spend a whole week with us. We packed in all these trips, including the one I'm about to tell you about and my poor mom and dad were really good sports about everything. But! This year! It's my mom and dad's turn to go on a trip and WE ARE GOING TO GO STAY WITH WRENNIE AND CHLOE! Our brothers are coming too... not that they want to be on our blog just yet. But we're working on it, I promise!
Last year, one of the places we went was to the Civil War Museum and Confederate Cemetery in Atoka, Oklahoma. We didn't get to go in the museum because it was closed, but we took a couple of pictures of the cemetery.
This is explaining about the battle site. We were walking around at dusk and it kind of got creepy. There were a lot of woods nearby and something rustling around. We were kind of worried about ghosts.
Most of the graves looked like this. They weren't really very big, either.
This was almost the whole cemetery. We didn't get a lot of pictures because of that creepy noise.
We tried to take a few. We found this little cabin that we didn't feel uncomfortable around. (Taking pictures on someone's grave seemed kind of disrespectful so we didn't.)
With a little stone fence.
And a small wood one! This was one of the fences on that big long sort of trail behind the first marker up there. It went off into the woods into nowhere so we didn't follow it.
We got this picture of me in front of the small cabin...
One of Penny on the fence...
Wrennie over by some rocks...
And Chloe with the cabin in the background.
There was kind of an off-putting guy in a truck watching us this whole time which made us nervous so we decided between that, the ghost and the fact that it was dark, we wouldn't stick around to learn much more about the property.
Have you ever had an adventure go awry like that?
PS - We did figure out what it was. Turns out it wasn't a ghost after all.
That's one mystery solved!!
