Civil War Remembrance Weekend at Greenfield Village

We made our first trip to Greenfield Village in Detroit for the Civil War Remembrance Weekend.  “In Greenfield Village, you can ride in a genuine Model T or “pull” glass with world-class artisans; you can watch 1867 baseball or ride a train with a 19th-century steam engine. It’s a place where you can choose your lunch from an 1850s menu or spend a quiet moment pondering the home and workshop where the Wright brothers invented the airplane.” (www.thehenryford.org/village)  We spent most of our time wandering through Civil War reenactments in tents and buildings.  My daughter and I made sewed a rosette that showed whether we supported the Union or Confederacy and we put together dried flowers to carry with us for when you smell something unpleasant.
