Yesterday we headed up to Vincennes, IN and attended the Muster on the Wabash which reenacts the encampments of the War of 1812. Love the dedication of the reenactors - they actually camped onsite for the weekend (which turned really cold) with no modern day comforts with the exception only of a couple of toilets - no showers. We learned so much from the many history buffs that were quick to share their information - we watched people craft and reenact battle scenes and enjoyed some period food. I even got to play with the Blacksmith's tools. I made the S-Hook pictured (with help of course) - You can tell I had fun during the twisting part since there are so many wonky twists. That was the easiest part of the process. I got to wear his leather apron and use all the tools but his hammer - "Nobody uses my hammer but me." I sketched the girl during our drive up.
