Old Fort Harrod ~ Harrodsburg, KY

We spent yesterday at Fort Harrod in Harrodsburg, KY.

The fort is about 25 miles southwest of Lexington, KY. about a 3 hour drive for us.

We watched the Reenactment of the 1774 battle.

The boys climbed on Osage tree its huge.

Watched demonstrations about flint rock guns, textiles, Indian culture and saw lots of stuff from the era.

Fort at the outside corner.

Inside one of the cabins.

This guy is explaining how the flint rock rifle worked.

Inside Fort Harrod men dressed in period clothing before the battle.

Tents the settlers used during this time.

Settlers from the Fort portraying the two boys that were target shooting before the Indians attacked. The battle lasted 4 hours. One was killed and the other waited behind a tree until he was pulled under the fort to safety hours later.

This is one of the Indians I especially like this picture. He explained about the Indian culture.

Also, at the Fort Harrod was a musuem with lots of interesting artifacts, plus the church where Abe Lincolns parents where married and the one room cabin they lived in after their marriage.

Clean and organized work space..

I spend most of the day on Saturday purging, cleaning and organizing my scrapbook/stamp/sewing space.

Michael put up a curtain rod for my big punches and moved some things around on the walls for me.

I took everything out of the space and moved it to the kitchen. What a terrible mess it was.

I love the comment from Mckay " Mom where did you put all that stuff that was in the kitchen", I said back in my work space. " but where.?"

Sorry I didn't take a before picture but lets say you couldn't see but about 2% of the white counter space.

After all the hard work this is what I ended up with.

Mountain Man Breakfast

We got Seth a dutch oven for his birthday.

Aunt Julie and Uncle Gene got the other necessary items to cook outside on the coals.

Seth made his first meal for breakfast on Sunday.

First get the coals ready and put them on the top and under the dutch oven

Turn the pot a quarter of a turn and the lid.. makes it cook more even.. I'm told.

Here is the finished product YUMMY!!

This is how they cook at the Boy Scout Camp outs.

He said he was trying a dessert next.
