CHECOTAH, Okla. — Participants will have the opportunity to build their own Civil War–style wooden ammo crate on Saturday, October 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. during a special make-and-take workshop at Honey Springs Battlefield. In this outdoor class, led by instructor Jake Krumwiede, participants will walk through the easy steps of piecing together a sturdy storage crate from pre-cut panels using light construction techniques.

To register for this class or to get more information, contact Honey Springs Battlefield at honeysprings@history.ok.gov or adam.lynn@history.ok.gov, or call 918-617-7125. The workshop costs $25 per person, which covers all the materials to make one crate to take home.

The visitor center is located on a hill within close proximity to the Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame in Rentiesville.
