Living History is an amazing and intriguing experience. It was created to bring to life our heritage, show how hard life really was, and how we can learn from their struggles by showing them through acting. I started volunteering for the Shiloh Museum and the Washington County Historical Society Headquarters House a couple years ago, and it has been a wonderful adventure for me. I have several different programs, and dress up in character from different time periods! I like it best when I can sing ballads and perform historical dances in a group. As volunteers, we perform for different audiences, from young schoolchildren to elderly ladies. It is such a blessing to me how Granna works so hard on the dresses I use, and I am so grateful to her!!! Living History is quite an adventure, and the best thing is, anyone can be a part of it! It is an amazing thing to re-discover our heritage!!!
