When reenacting or acting as a historical interpreter, its good to have a few historical dates and stories to share. This series will publish a few.

August 6-10, 1787 – Fifty-five delegates from each of the 13 States met in Philadelphia to determine how to “fix” the Articles of Confederation.  Weaknesses in the Articles of Confederation created interstate conflict, an inability to pay off the national debt, and an inability to oust the British from forts ceded to the new nation by the Treaty of Paris.  Eventually, it was resolved that these weaknesses could not be overcome and a new US Constitution would be drafted.

My goal is to bring history alive through interactive portrayal of ordinary American life in the late 18th Century (1750—1799) My persona are: Journeyman Brewer; Cordwainer (leather tradesman but not cobbler), Statesman and Orator; Chandler (candle and soap maker); Gentleman Scientist; and, Soldier in either the British Regular Army, the Centennial Army, or one of the various Militia. Let me help you experience history 1st hand!
