It’s The Old Days Again

You know that Mike hast to go some where on nice weekends. This time it was a reenactment over at Silver Lake in Kenosha County. Of course we got in the faithful old Mustang, put the top down and took off. When we got there we discovered a nice park not far from our house. A quaint reenactment set just before the Revolutionary War broke out. Here’s the photos from the day.

The storekeep in the tent in the background there had a very floral ensemble whose hat only made me think that he looked like he had been sleeping. Also I loved the lady walking by in historic garb.

Red coats took off their red wool coats and slept outside their tents on the unusally hot day.

  1. We have a ‘village’ where all kinds of historical re-enactments are celebrated year round: the period costumes; cooking, food of the time, surgery practices etc. It’s al so Interesting.
