Frontier Muster and Trade Faire
Ron reported that there were several differences between the 2013 program and previous programs. For example, the 2013 program was not able to rely so heavily on park staff due to restrictions on wage staff. He explained that this limitation would greatly impact the amount of people on hand to assist with the program. Ron also explained that there was an increase in restrictions on the use of black powder, which would limit their use of firearms. However, he also reported that the grant that was received enabled them to focus more on education by bringing in Micah Swimmer and his family as well as some African American re-enactors to provide a slave narrative.
Joan added that there would be several workshops and programs such as cooking, Cherokee dance, a slave narrative, and a church service.
