Living History and Lively Music



Earlier I showed a photo of a horse-drawn cart at Edinburg's Ole Time Festival. Other transportation options included a hay wagon and a fine old taxi, suitable for Tuesday's Treasures. I'm also sharing this post with Through My Lens.

I enjoy seeing old-fashioned costumes and there were plenty at the festival, mostly from the Civil War era. This was the first time I've seen a Living Historians banner: "Teaching History by Living It."
