Our vacation to Connecticut
It made us think about how far we Americans have come with industrialation, and how dependent we are on machinary to create our every day items of clothing. They also crocheted many items and knitted some too. We saw the tools that they used too. Spinning wheels, looms, and such were in homes first before they were ever in factories.
Animals of that era weren't just pets but they were used for transportation, food, fertilizer,and clothing. They had a horse drawn wagon that we could ride inside of if we wanted to. They even had a bank with half cent pieces displayed and a general store. We got to see their weapons and their Miltia attire.
