It’s become a tradition to assemble for a photo on Sunday afternoon. It’s hard to believe that only 5 re-enactors attended this event in 2006! It was great to see the many folks involved. Families, children, women by themselves and so many mothers and daughters that are making this an annual tradition. Hats off to all the demonstrators, performers and of course the staff of Fort Boonesborough.
I would like to personally thank the newcomers, the people that traveled long distances, the women that jump from the Civil War (with all correct clothing just for this event) so they can round out their 19th century personas by learning the skills of their mothers and grandmothers. Hats off to the 4H moms that drove from central Ohio to give their daughters a taste of the 18th century. Thanks also to Darby and Shan Hinton who added another dimension to the weekend. And thanks to my re-enacting friends Kristi, Michelle, Paula, Laura, Debby, Cindy, Jay, Martha, Rosanne, Michael, Scott, Jim, Larry, Frank and Carol and all the others who I called upon to put together this spectacular weekend.
And a final thanks to the Fort Boonesborugh Foundation. By providing meals and concessions they free us from the need to cook and watch our fires on this weekend - so we have time to listen, learn and visit. Barb Disney headed their group this weekend and did a marvelous job. The Foundation also sponsored the “Goody bags” we gave to the registered women filled with information about life in living history.
And picture taking this weekend fell entirely to Jim Cummings. He did a great job. And although I wanted to use the individual shots (above) so I could put names and faces together - I have included them all in the traditional slide show below.
