Hamburg, NY – Living History Day scheduled on Friday, May 19, 2017 will be held at the Hamburg Fairgrounds, hosted by The Boston Historical Society. There will be two events on the same day.
The first is for selected schools in the area and the second is open to the public. The Boston Historical Society is working with grant foundations, businesses, and parent/teacher organizations to form educational partnerships that will support the entire cost of this experience. If you are interested in donating to this special educational event or if you are a reenactor or are familiar with someone who would enjoy presenting a session, please contact Jason Steinagle at [email protected]
Area school bus transportation will bring the children and chaperones to the Fairgrounds at 9:30 a.m. and departs at 2:00 p.m. The Boston Historical Society will arrange seven, twenty-five minute sessions throughout the day. Topics may include artillery fire, mounted cavalry, drill simulations, engineering and ministry, blacksmithing forges, women’s perspectives on the home front and in the Sanitary Commission, and perspectives of the Confederacy.
The second event, on Friday, May 19, is open for the public from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
