18th Century Market Fair and Reenactment
Every year, a fascinating recreation of life at the time of America's
independence is offered at Locust Grove in Louisville, KY. Locust Grove is a
National Historic Landmark on 55 acres of the original 694 acre farm established
by William and Lucy Clark Croghan in 1790. William Croghan was the
brother-in-law and surveying partner of George Rogers Clark, founder of
Louisville and Revolutionary War hero. George Rogers Clark spent the last nine
years of his life at Locust Grove, from 1809 until his death in 1818.
Military camps of the Colonial, British, German and French soldiers. And don't forget the militia and renegades!
Time at assemble on the battlefield!
Well, the British took the field today. I have a feeling that the outcome will be different tomorrow.
This is a great weekend event held every year in the fall on the beautiful grounds of historic Locust Grove. I will be back again next year.
