Civil War Ball offers an enchanting evening


The Friends of Fort DefianceThe Friends of Fort Defiance held their first Civil War Ball at the Smith Trahern mansion on Saturday evening. While the group has not yet officially discussed it, group President Phyllis Smith hopes that this will become an annual event, and quite possibly a new tourist attraction for the City of Clarksville, as this inaugural evening drew one couple all the way from Illinois.

All of the guests were required to be attired in a period costume, and those who did not have one available, were able to rent one from George Terrell, the owner of Backstage Costume Rental. Because of the additional required expense of renting a costume, the Friends of Fort Defiance kept the cost of tickets for the event fairly low, only $30 per person, for a night of dinner and dancing.
