(Molly note: There is a reenactment group in Australia and one of the members has an excellent blog. Worth checking out! The picture comes from one of their events.
Wanted to pass this info along to those of you who may be interested. This event will be held in Rogersville and looks to be a good opportunity. Several women native and colonial as well as civil war re-enactors are planning to attend and with it in our own back door too good for me to pass up. Please email Abby Patton if you are interest firstname.lastname@example.org . Would love to see some of you ladies there! Sure there will lots to learn !! Enjoy Sherry
Mollynote: I’ve included the link from the Frontier Folk site where Abby Patton describes this event in more detail. It’s primitive to the max, gals! Travel light and bring a trench shovel :o)
Directions from Kingsport TN
When you pass Food Lion on the rightwatch for lighted intersection with the sign Goshen Valley Road (sign will be on the right side of highway). Turn LEFT at the intersection.
Follow Goshen Valley Road to the very end – 13 miles. Turn Right.
Travel 1 mile to Pond Road on right.
Turn right onto one lane Pond Rd which looks like a drive-way. Follow to first home on right – 156 Pond Road.
We are approximately 10 miles from the closest store. You may also wish to purchase gas before leaving Rogersville or Kingsport areas if you’re running low.
Unless you are on Verizon wireless (which I am not), cell phones will not work and there is no land phone. The closest location where a cell phone will work is 5 miles from the site. If the day is clear.some cell phones will work from the top of my mountain so if speaking on the phone is a necessity know that it will be like “Green Acres” and you’ll have to climb the mountain each time.
There is a deep pond on the premises. For those bringing children (and for all included),I would caution that this is not a place to play and once you see it you’ll understand. There are also very steep cliffs and small gorges where one can slip and fall, But there is plenty of area for play and camping. I would advise we stick close to those locations.
Thank you all!
An e-book is being produced for all attendees. Copies will be given out at the event, therefore, please let me know if you’re bringing guests or know of someone who has not RSVP’d.
