Invitation to dinner . . . in a tractor shed?

Tonight, after a day of thrift store work and housepainting, we were invited to dinner at Baconia Plantation, owned by Ben Lamensdorf, who had offered to share with us about a Civil War battle which took place on the property. This was arranged for us by Luther Brown, who stopped by Cary Christian Center to give us a short talk about the history and culture of the Mississippi Delta.

Photos: 1) Ben Lamensdorf talks with us about the battle of Steele Bayou. 2) Mike Lamensdorf, Ben's son, shows some of the cannon balls which have been found in the farm's fields over the years. 3) Luther Brown tells us about the rich musical heritage of the Delta.
