Spring Civil War Weekend

 We attended a small 1860's event in mid May. We day tripped and only stayed a few hours but it was fun and it was good to see friends again! Here are a few pictures from the day. I made a new 1860's dress for this event out of some black cotton poplin and I made Anne (who does not like to wear dresses) some side buttoning trousers that she paired with a white shirt and jacket I originally made for Judah quite a few years ago. I also made my oldest son, David, a new waistcoat out of black cotton denim. That was the only new sewing required but I think Benjamin will need a new outfit before next time, whenever that may be. Judah and Malachi did not attend with us as they had other plans at the time. 

These next pictures are from my phone and so they are lower quality. I do tend to pull out my phone far more frequently than my big camera as it is so much more convenient! 

Now, this weekend a few of us will be attending another 1860's day event at the boyhood home of Ulysses Grant. I hope to get some good pictures of the events of the day, including the reenactment of the surrender between Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee.
