2012: Mississinewa 1812
Mississinewa 1812 is a local historical event that takes place each year in October. There are hundreds of reenactors that come to show life in the 1800’s – hunting, war, cooking, making items. We took Jonathan to experience the American history at the event. I will admit that I am not really sure what the event commemorates because the reenactors seem to be from different battles and places, but it is still a lot of fun to watch everything that is going on, and to eat some good old fashioned kettle corn.
I used some brown felted paper to create accents on this page as well as some burlap tags that I purchased at my local art store. I used my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite Punch to add brads to help hold the burlap tags on as well as to add interest. I was able to affix the program and map from the event to the outside of the plastic protector so that they viewer could look through it.
Note: See the scrapbook of an earlier visit to Mississinewa 1812 in 2008.
