In the picture above it shows Captain David. He told us how when the the people first arrived in America and were native to England and ruled by King James they got land and food and women could own land too. The non-colonists did not get land so men must buy it and women could not own land at all.
But, eventually when the non-colonists needed backup forces in the war they promised the colonists land and food if they helped.
One of our other stations was about Angus Macclean. He was a carpenter and he told us about how he made roofing and how he used flint to dig out wood bricks to make bowls.
The bowls had tiny holes in them and sometimes food would get stuck in the crevices and it would rot. Then someone else would eat out of it and collect the rotted food in their mouth and get mouth rot.
One of the other stations was the wigmaker's station. Her name was Laura Goode or something like like that and she showed us how she made a wig/powder a wig. She told us how some wigs were made of real human hair and some were made of goat or yak hair. She told us how she puts a clay mask on the person who wants their wig powdered (particularly the males as in the 1800's men wearing wigs was not uncommon) and then powdered their wig. The mask kept the powder from getting in their eyes. For the whole trip it was very, very, fun!
