coolest Civil War Muster ever xo Fall weekends in #puremichigan

What a day for a beautiful Civil War Muster!  We stayed the entire day and just could not get enough.  Everything was true to the Civil War era including the delicious homemade food of Johnny cakes, baked beans, applesauce, beef stew and much more.

 One of the few reenactments with horses in action during battle


our youngest son choose a Confederate uniform...  We have some more learning to do (smile)


What a gorgeous Saturday in #puremichigan

Our children were enthralled with this day of living history practically in our back yard!

Thank you Holland Museum for the reenactment day!

So cool! We moved to the South a year ago and are having a great time learning about our Country's history by sight and touch. So much better than reading about it in books. How fun it must be to participate in the re-enactments.

Thank goodness there are people that keep our history alive. Wonderful event.
