Revolutionary War Dragoons at Brattonsville

Today the kids and I headed to Brattonsville, to take in their Time Travel Tuesday program.  Today we learned about the dragoons that fought at the Battle of Hucks Defeat, which was fought near there.  It was SO interesting.  As usual, the costumed interpreters were so knowledgeable, and so engaged with the kids.  This man was dressed as a member of the British Legion, and the green coat was actually historically accurate.  Who knew?  The horse was not an heirloom breed, however, because he said the horses then were much smaller – as were the men they carried.  We just really enjoyed talking to him.

He had a display of reproduction Revolutionary War uniforms and weapons, and was more than happy for the kids to hold the guns – which were VERY heavy. Here is June checking out the pistol. Great day.

  4. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
