What an awesome living history event we were fortunate enough to attend! Lots of old time handcrafts! I've never seen folks cook fish on a plank fireside. (I tasted it, so good!) We spent a lot of time with the shoemaker and I was intrigued with the rolling pin making setting up. Plus they had a military draft. Soldiers signed up or got drafted, then got paid for their duty. Then they marched and learned about serving. After serving, they were able to go to the general store to purchase goods with the money they earned serving their country. Such a neat learning opportunity for me...err...the kids. Plus a photo op for Anna-Kate. I am certain we'll put this event in our schedule next year.
