The Bonnie Blue Ball
In April of 1861, the first shot of the American Civil War was fired. The people of the South fought the people of the North, brother against brother, family against family, one state against another.  The story is a long one, a story told countless times in countless ways, of the people of North and South, and the things they faced so long ago.

Take a step into history and join us on February 7th, 2009 at the annual Bonnie Blue Ball. This year’s event will be held in the City Auditorium of Winnsboro, Texas. Come and step in time to the lively 1860’s tunes played, in person, by the renowned Tiger String Band, dancing such dances as the Virginia Reel, the Spanish Minuet and the Patty Cake Polka. There will be an abundance of swishing hoop-skirts and courteous Southern gentlemen, of clapping hands and tapping heels. Come one! Come all! To celebrate our history and our heritage in a memorable evening that is wonderful fun for the whole family.
