My son and I joined a Revolutionary War reenactment group. My own experience with living history goes back to college work study days. We love sharing information about American history and lost crafts and arts.
We both enjoy the camping aspect-yes we do actually sleep in those canvas tents-and meeting the reenactment community. Some specialize in a particular era, but many also span time frames from Norse invaders to WW2.
It's always curious that modern kids seldom understand pre-industrial, or pre-electronic, production of goods or foods.
There are so many living history sites here in New England, from Plymouth, now billed as America's Hometown to French and Indian War sites. Among these is Deerfield, MA, where my own ancestors were captured and marched to Quebec! I'll be sharing posts from many of these historic sites.
