This weekend’s event at Brentsville Courthouse was a total success!!! I think Georgia said the final spectator count was around 500, which is very good for a small living history/skirmish event. While the guys trained and displayed up at the Courthouse, we ladies were down at the Haislip House demonstrating how ladies lived during 1861. As you can see, I was knitting! And the cool thing was that I wasn’t the only one doing so. The kids did everything from draw to knit to sew. Rachel cooked an amazing stew for lunch, along with pie and lemonade.
I decided to pack up last night and head home … I was getting beyond tired and cranky and I didn’t think that would be fair to everyone else (trust me – I was above and beyond cranky.) I caught up on sleep and now feel rested, and would rather be camping out again than going back to work tomorrow.
But it was a great weekend! I was too busy to get pictures, but I’ll see if I can get some at the next event!
