“DANVILLE DAY” WILL COMMEMORATE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF GUERRILLA ATTACK

On October 4, 1864, guerrilla forces attacked the small town of Danville in Montgomery County, Missouri. Today, only a few structures from the original town remain as a result of guerrilla raiding: the Danville Female Academy and the Baker Plantation. Because this year marks 150 years since the attack, the area will host a special day of events, “Danville Day.” The day will feature live music, artisans, tours, and more. Danville is one of the stops along MCWHF’s “Gray Ghost Trail” and two of the foundation’s educational panels give the significance of the area during the Civil War.
