| Living History
the spring, summer and fall, living history events now abound! Our favorite time
periods are the 1750s through 1820. Events which represent these periods
range from French and Indian War or Seven Years War, American
Revolutionary War or War of Independence, War of 1812, and Napoleonic
Wars. Of course not ALL events represent a war! The concentration on war
events is because living history really bloomed when the United States
celebrated our bi-centennial. Major living history groups formed then and
have evolved, and most of these groups now have civilian divisions and
interpretations. There are many civilian events cropping up at museums
sites across the country, as well.
One of the best known is the Fair at New Boston, held each Labor Day
Weekend at George Rogers Clark Park, just west of Springfield, Ohio. This
event is a 1790-1810 trade fair, and is sponsored by the George
Rogers Clark Heritage Association, an all volunteer organization. This
association also sponsors a spring event and plant sale in May, and a fall
event in October. See their web site for event listings.
Kannik's Korner patterns are available from merchants at these shows, and we may
be set up and demonstrating sewing at some!
Some of the shows we know about, are listed below. For more
information and confirmation of the show dates, times and admission
