Long Description:

County of Post Office: Macon County.
Location of Post Office: Main St. (MO-149) & Front St., New Cambria
Civil War battle fought just north of town, is a strange one in the annals of the Civil War. The Confederates had 2,000 men in this battle, and it lasted from noon to dark, and the strangest part of all, is the Confederates were defeated, and ---listen close-- and only one person died. That's is correct, only one person died, and he was a Confederate soldier who attempted to swim his horse across the creek, fell off and drowned. Now that is strange.

New Cambria is a large livestock production area.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
