1. Grab a picture from our Daily Photo Journal of your person and upload it onto this blog entry.
2. Write a caption for your photo & click the "Lightbox" so people can see the larger version.
3. Summarize your experience at the Historical Reenactment by writing about what you learned, the connections you made to your experience in 1775 Boston, and what you liked or disliked. Try to show me how valuable of an experience this was. If you write "in character" (as an apprentice visiting Illinois) it will possibly be more fun!
Coming to Illinois was a very fun experience. I learned a lot coming out here from Boston. I learned that it was a lot different than the busy streets of Boston. I also learned that life is much tougher in Illinois then life in the colonies. I also learned that to be a scout you have to be able to read and write. Overall this was a pretty valuable experience and I learned a lot.
