We took the grandkids to Old Sturbridge Village to get a feel for real American history.
This was part of a trip through Massachussetts to teach what it meant to live and work at the time of the American Revolution. In Old Strubridge, we were able to see tin smiths and iron workers, bakers and politicians, basket weavers and barrel makers. There was farming with hand plows and horse and oxen, the homes were slat-board and log and brick. The fireplaces took up half the kitchen and the floors were raw planks or flagstones.
Everyone in the village had there own work to contribute to the community and the actor/volunteers really made it come to life for the kids.
