The Way They Were

I love it when hubby and I go to a National Park or a historic site and find the park rangers or volunteers dressed to the nines – in period costumes. Generally, it means demonstrations of how things were done hundreds of years ago. It makes learning about the USA’s rich history much more interesting.
