Civil War Living History

Since moving back to “the States” I have been really looking forward to continuing one of my favorite hobbies – Living History.  For me, it is a wonderful blend of learning, sewing, cooking, and sharing it with others in real time. The mid 19th century time frame in American history was an era of huge transition. Men volunteered to leave their families to fight a war, which brought women out of the home and into industry, business, and completely changed our traditional role.

Lady's things from a time gone by

Over the past few days, I’ve been organizing some of things that have been neatly folded in storage for years.
Here is our canvas A-frame tent – Can you imagine living in a tent as a military spouse?
Yeah. Me neither. I like my mattress. And my air conditioning.
And my nutella.

8 years in storage and it still looks like it was made 150 years ago #civilwar #livinghistory
