Abingdon Muster Grounds

When we were in Virginia on the trip with our Forever Young group from church, my friend Pam’s aunt, who lives there, made arrangements for one of the historical interpreters that she is good friends with to come to the Muster Grounds and present a program for us.  It was so, so good.  She talked about just life around the time of the Revolutionary War, and one thing she talked about was their clothes.  She said that they literally wore clothes until they wore completely out, and that there was a very good change that you were wearing clothes that belonged to your ancestors.  Very interesting.
