I am tired..it was a day. Approximately 75 people attended. I had hoped for more..but it is what it is. Daughter Jen said “ Mom it is a success if one person shows up.” She also left me a licorice pipe on the table at home..my favorite treat!
There were a number of children who attended.
Noah and Daniel
New recruits..they passed the all your fingers and toes test (no farm accidents), their teeth were inspected …you need four good teeth to rip the paper off the powder to load your weapon..and they knew their right from their left.
It was a fun afternoon.
The re enactors were awesome. They traveled from Grand Forks North Dakota. They volunteer their time to educate the public about the Civil War. They are an interesting and highly educated group of people. It was a pleasure to welcome them to the Museum.
I asked her what she carried in her bag..she replied “Today only my gloves.” I asked her if she could sit down comfortably..and she showed me that yes she could. One of my volunteers said perhaps I should dress up like that everyday in the museum. That is probably not happening:)
