Tabletop Games, 1860's-Style

Inside the Bushong Farm house


"Christmas on the Farm" depicted life in the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. Here we see girls and an older woman playing games like checkers and pick-up sticks. These gentle scenes remind me of Little Women, which was set during the Civil War.
