Another Great Re-enactment

The Carlyle House Historic Park in Alexandria celebrated their second annual reenactment of the day George Washington and his family came to dinner at the Carlyle House. A fantastic group of reenactors brought the scene to life for the public. There were musicians playing, dance lessons, sewing, dinner preparations, and lots of great 18th century conversations about all the things going on in the Virginia colony. This reenactment like many held at the Carlyle House lasted for four hours and gave the public a wonderful opportunity to explore the house and see first hand what life in the 18th Century was like.
We all owe a great deal to the living history volunteer that make events like this possible.
