         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Sunday, September 2, 2012:  Mark and Paula were off to an American Revolutionary War re-enactment near Saukville, Wisconsin, about 40 miles north of Milwaukee.

It was 1775 to 1783 when King George III was ruling the United Kingdom and the Continental Congress, with the help of George Washington, was trying to free America from Britain. 

It was a place where history came alive from 1776.


Even Doctor Ben Franklin was there. 

In the background is a picture of his wife Debora who died a few years earlier. 

Ben is holding a five Dollar bill issued by the Continental Congress.

Where would any war be without a sawbones?

There was blood letting before any limb was cut off....the practice of the day.

These re-enactors really got into their parts.  Great stuff!
Get ready to fire!
Then there was a battle in the afternoon between the British Redcoats in the back and the Continental Army Soldiers.
The British were routed, leaving many dead on the battlefield.

A real history lesson for everyone.

Quote of the day:  It was quite a learning experience.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
