Painesville, 2012

Reenactment in Painesville, Ohio, at the Lake County Historical Center! July 14th, 2012 (or 1862, if you prefer!).

Tried to make sure the background was period appropriate!
Back view. The bodice isn’t fitting quite right, but I think (hope) that mostly took care of itself with new underpinnings.

The strange juxtaposition of troops marching, hoopskirts, shorts and t-shirts, and kettle corn, with “telegraph” wires?
Working reproduction Gatling – made from the original patent drawings and instructions. The Gatling was barely used during the Civil War – it largely came into use after; versions of this gun are still in use today.

Most sincerely yours,
~ Sarah
