The Homeplace 1850 living history farm goes forward in time to 1864. This area has been occupied by federal troops and under martial law since the fall of Forts Henry and Donelson in February 1862.
Learn how the family farms, especially women, faced many challenges keeping the family fed and clothed, and farm operations going without the help of their menfolk. They also lived with foraging parties taking needed food, clothing, blankets and farm animals. Experience the challenges and fears of the farm family and learn how they persevered.
This program is ideal for home educators. The event is free with admission to The Homeplace.
