Visitors at the Newtonia Fall Festival on Saturday had opportunities to explore the community's place in history. Paul Kash, of Webb City, at right, a major in the Third Missouri Field Medical Services of Civil War re-enactors, explained how a door was taken off the Ritchey home to serve as an operating table for the surgeon at the battle. Kash displayed his complete set of tools that a Civil War field surgeon carried to Judy Long, of Neosho. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff] [Order this photo]
