30 Baseball and a Battlefield

The Field of Dreams, the site of the Movie where old time baseball players appeared out of a corn field because Keven Costner (a Ventura CA boy) built it. It’s 5 miles off the highway so we passed on it.

At that same point in old Route 66 a battle raged way back in 1863. The band of Bushwackers known as Quantrill’s Raders dressed as Union Soldiers and drew the troops of General James Blunt into an ambush. A dirty trick? Depends on which side you were taking we suppose.
