Southern experience


It just doesn’t get any better than this…. Evan’s “16th” birthday party, actually being held half a year late. Everybody dressed in period costume, and we had traditional music with traditional dancing at the Onion Shed, a wonderful old pavilion in Farmersville.

Odd… there weren’t any Yankees at this party. Perhaps that was because the invitation specified that this was a Confederate Ball!

What a weekend! Everyone should have 20 teenagers staying overnight at their house, making Confederate costumes! And everyone should have our good friends the Beauchamps helping out with every aspect of the gathering! Thanks Beauchamps!

    Stereotypes are for ignorant people and are a substitute for thinking and learning. I know that most of the (well-educated) kids at the party were far more well informed about the actual behavior of Civil War era people, than the great bulk of Americans who get their information from TV.

    What other Civil War era behavior was re-created at the Ball? Any slaves sold?
