It is my goal to attend as many living history events as I can at historical sites. I love historical buildings and architecture. I may or may not have mentioned in the past that when I was young, I would sit by the fireplace, cozy and warm, reading The Field Guide to American Houses. For fun. Yup. That was me at 13.
Back in the beginning of August the NTWA and BAR had a combined event at Fort Meigs, Perrysburg, OH, just outside of Toledo (which is an hour or so south of where I used to live in MI. Weird.)
At this event, I followed the 4th Connecticut as their petty sutler. We stayed in one of the blockhouses. It was awesome.
Because I was the only one able to sneak pictures….this was the only picture of me. Taken by me. 🙂
Although it was sultry during the day, I thoroughly enjoyed the trek and location. It was worth it.
