Other expenses will be on your own such as transportation.  If you want to be a passenger in someone else's car, we would recommend a payment of $15 to the driver.  Admission costs are being taken care of by our guide, Connie Langum, historian at Wilson's Creek.  Dinner on Saturday evening will be on your own, and there are several moderately priced restaurants near the hotel.

We want to arrive at Wilson's Creek by noon on Saturday, October 7.  We are estimating about three hours from Independence, MO so we would want to be on the road by 9 a.m.  Depending on where you are starting from, you can adjust your time schedule.  We estimate leaving the Newtonia Battlefield about 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 8 with an arrival in Independence at about 4 p.m.
