Headed out to Shaker Village for a Civil War Re-enactment. I've only been to one re-enactment before. However, we got the time wrong & showed up just after the battle was over! Thought this would be different. HA! After today, I still have yet to see a re-enactment!!!
The plan was to have lunch in Harrodsburg at Erin's mother's house, then head to the Village from there. Got a late start. Got lost getting there. Had a nice lunch. Found out that this really wasn't going to be a real re-enactment. See, the Shakers never saw a battle on their property. However, they showed big hospitality to the soldiers. There were camps set up in the area. So what they really do is not re-enact a battle, they dress people up in funny clothes, then they sit around a camp site, looking all historical. Of course, we get there so late, the characters have torn down their camp & are leaving. So we wandered the grounds seeing the sites. My friend, Joseph, worked there several years ago. So he gave us a tour, complete with the inside scoop.
