Well, for weeks I have been so excited about a fairly local barracks built in 1793. That roughly matches up to our history studies. And it is Georgia history which I always try to emphasize. Well, The barracks has been used as a private residence until fairly recently. So it was more about life in the country in the sixties than anything. Of course there were The Old Car People. Perhaps some of you like Old Cars. I just cannot understand why they show up everywhere! Jerry was a bit bitter when he saw them; I had been talking up the age and orginal use of the building for weeks. When he saw the Old Cars, he slipped a bit and said, "No matter what the occasion, they always bring their old dxxx cars." The Chipmunk calmly replied, "No, Daddy, some of them brought their old dxxx trucks." Well...
The Civil War re-enactors where there. Odd since we have never had a civil war in this country- you know two or more factions fighting for control of the central government. We did have the Late Unpleasantness of 1861, when the USA invaded the CSA....maybe that is what they meant ;) Anyway... there was another group there that goes to the same events as the military re-enactors and shows a civilian side. That was really interesting. In fact, I entertained serious thoughts of joining. It would be alot of fun for the whole family and it would match up to our history next year. We'll see. I suppose it costs TIME though.
