This weekend history will jump off
the pages of the past at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency
with History Alive! This Friday, July 11 at 7:00 PM &
Saturday July 12 at 7:00 PM come and see Living History scholars
Karen Vuranch as Mary Draper Ingles and Doug Wood as Mankiller
Ostenaco. Both scholars have thoroughly researched the story of
their characters to create a great look into the life of
individuals from two very different cultures. Performances by
both scholars will be under the tent at the Johnston Farm -
bring your own lawn chair.
At the conclusion of each
performance, the scholars will answer questions from the
audience; first as the historical character, and then as the
scholar. This gives you the opportunity to delve even deeper
into the past.
Presentations will be preceded by
music each evening. Food will be available both evenings on
site. There will also be period camps and demonstrators to add
to the atmosphere of the weekend.
On Saturday at 1:00 PM both
scholars will conduct a workshop on creating a living history
presentation in the Education Center in the Indian and Canal
