Bill and Sandra Wayne have been involved in Civil War reenacting since 1986, but their interest in the era goes back much further.
Their home, formerly Cedarcroft Farm Bed & Breakfast, was built by Sandra's great-grandfather, John A. Adams, shortly after his return from service with the 7th Cavalry, Missouri State Militia, a union regiment.
Bill's great-grandfather, William L. Truman, settled in Louisiana after the war - he served with Wade's 1st Missouri Battery (CS) throughout the South. The farm's parlor displays some of John Adams' war mementos; Bill uses W.L. Truman's war memoir to support first person impressions. Cedarcroft's book collection contains many pre-war and early post-war volumes.
William L. Truman's War Memoir is available on line. For permissions, contact the Missouri State Historical Society
