Living History Days ~ Field Trip

Living History Days is a diamond in the rough. Located along the foothills in Morrison, it is a reenactment of the time and place of the American Revolutionary war.

We heard George Washington speak to the crowds.

Saw the living quarters of the British loyalists.

Met an American soldier dressing and speaking the part.

Saw the cannon

and the guns. Yes, they really work and are really loud!

Little E got to try her hand at some chores. She stuffed some mattresses for the officers

and washed some clothes.

We watched a gunsmith talk about how to make a period gun.

Little E got to play some authentic games.

This year, the reenactment was the battle of Fort Henry. It seems they change up the battles every year. Well done.

The kids got to make their own candles by doing some candle dipping.

E got to stir the fire by pushing on the bellows.

They both worked in the wood shop.

And tried out some quill pens for “school.”

  1. I am a fifth grade teacher in Jefferson County who teaches the American Revolution. Can you please send me information and prices for your Revolution reenactment? I am interested in this field trip for my students next year. We will have about 100 students. Thank you.

  2. It’s a great event and I hope that you can go. I don’t run it though. We made a field trip out of it. They run events twice a year, usually in the Spring and the Fall. If you want to go, there’s an event coming up at the end of April. Check out their website for details: http://www.livinghistorydays.com/
