The last civil war reenactment of the season
I've mentioned before how my family does civil war re-enacting, mostly for my mom's business of making historic clothing for museums, historical sites, and re-enactors. We re-enact with the Northwest Civil War Council at four weekend-long events each summer and a few smaller things in the off-season.
This weekend's event is at Milo McIver State Park, a lovely park on the Clackamas River east of Portland. It's a very scenic area, with the main drag right in front of the river (although the spot we always camp at, on Sulter's Row--the shops' area--tends to be lumpy and downhill, now that I think about it...). Here are some pics from last year.
Here's the store, the back view (for some reason this is the only pic we have of it...)
Well, now I'm off to pack the car, and until next time, I'll be sporting a corset and hoop skirt and lots of undergarments. Here's to a good weekend!
