Work begins on Eagle Scout trail to Monument

[Charity]

 

    Kuttawa Boy Scout Charlie Johnston’s handicap trail to the Cobb’s Battery monument project began in early October. At left, Kerry Stinnett, owner of Lawn Tek Landscaping, donated his time and equipment to do initial clearing. Right, Nicki Engler and Zack Galusha line up trail timbers while Richard P’Pool from Friends of Cobb’s Battery drills anchor holes. Other scouts and leaders helping in the project were: Charles Bagwell, Benny Cobb, Larry Walston, Dale Cartwright, Matt Cartwright, Andrew Slaton, Andrew Brazel, Randy Wright, Joe Terrell, Charlie Johnston and his mom, Tere Johnston. Several of the boys involved have joined the Lyon County History Club.

 

   The monument was erected in 1931 near the site of the formation of Cobb’s Battery at Mint Springs. It has been undergoing restoration by the Friends of Cobb’s Battery, a non-profit group of Civil War reenactors and supporters.
