They fired off a cannon - very loud.
Paul Revere came.
The drum and fife corps led the rabble out of the muster area.
They were asking for volunteers who would willing to join the militia and fight for freedom. Christina and Alexia signed on. The British are coming!!! The structures are part of this living museum with costumed docents, including a tavern and silversmith that we visited and more that we didn't.
The volunteers are getting trained by a scout and a drummer. The drummer explained that the drum beat is what they need to listen for instruction - it's the sound that gets through all the cacophony of war. They are drilling with sticks in lieu of rifles.
Ready to muster - and, march!
I subbed today for the first time in an elementary school and it was a blast, though I am exhausted tonight. I had eight classes for library visits and finally had the opportunity to read to and interact with the pupils - lots of pupils. I'll want to sub there again. In the meantime someone needs to do my laundry, but tomorrow is CERT traffic control training. Good grief.
