Apparently I photo-bombed without knowing. First pic is from Fort William Henry who hosted a re-enactment of various time periods. Second pic is from a pep rally at my alma mater.
Decided to dress for Halloween 2018. Found my old military uniform and actually fits. My dog was a sheriff from the Wild West.
hosted a trip to @grants_tomb
back on October 18, 2018. This is a second set of pics showing the outside and inside of the area of the tomb.
October 18, 2018 @grantcottage
sponsored a trip @grants_tomb
which was well worth it and the weather was sunny though slightly chilly. The park rangers did very well with the tours and telling the history. A very respectable site that should be visited by everyone.
First time at the Parting Glass in Saratoga and a chance to see a favorite local band Hair of the Dog.
Civil War Weekend was great! Many re-enactors and people converge onto D.A. Collins property and made it a great experience for all. Had the chance to meet General Chamberlain, who helps with the Confederation of Union Generals to help educate the public on generals’s first hand experience during the war. Many vendors were there and plenty of educational opportunities. Battles went over well and no injuries to both humans and horses. @grantcottage
Here’s a side by side comparison of the real Fred Grant and myself. Of course my attempt at growing a beard didn’t go well, I had the privilege of portraying him at the Remembrance Day event @grantcottage
July 22, 2018 was Grant Cottage Remembrance Day in honor of US Grant’s death 133 years ago. I was honored to play Fred Grant, eldest son of Grant. Ben, the site coordinator, played Ulysses, Jr (Buck), Grant’s other son. We also appear like brothers (totally not planned that way lol).
Another porch event at #grantcottage
with one of our staff members, Ben Kemp, talking about the life of a descendant who fought in the Civil War named Oscar Kemp who served in 115th NY regiment. Great history and great turnout. Also keep in mind the 155th anniversary of the Civil War’s events this year.
Lights, flag and bunting all set for the year.
Great event hosted at @grantcottage
with a visit from the author of “American Ulysses”, Ron C. White. Was able to participate in the Flag Day parade as well and got my name tag. @curtfields
Had a fun time with the wife @soundgirl2002
with horseback riding in the Adirondack. The people who own and operate @saddleupstables
were very friendly and helpful. Well worth it.
First porch lecture for the 2018 season featuring the re-enactment of the former Cottage caretakers Oliver and Martha Clark @grantcottage
