Some Faces From Heritage Day

Heritage-Day-1Every year Easton Pennsylvania celebrates Heritage Day. They have costumes from the Civil War, World War I and II, and the different times they lived in. Easton was one of the three places where the Declaration of Independence was originally read, so they have a reenactment of the reading.
We whizzed in and out for just a short time but I managed to get some cool people to photograph. When one of the soldiers in the first photo saw that I wanted a pictured he called the others to pose with him. They were super friendly and I really appreciated it.
It a good thing there are people that still want to keep history alive. I was especially glad to see how many young people were involved. My only regret is that we did not have enough time to spend.
I had no idea they did this every year, but next year I’ll be ready.Heritage-Day-2 Heritage-Day-3 Heritage-Day-4 Heritage-Day-5 Heritage-Day-6 Heritage-Day-7 Heritage-Day-8 Heritage-Day-9 Heritage-Day-10 Heritage-Day-11

  1. Reenactors do a wonderful job of teaching history by showing it. I applaud each and every one of them (wish I saw more of this going on) and a thank-you to you for bringing us these pictures of a job well done!
