World War II Encampment At The Colonial Plantation On April 14, 2013

As I stated in my previous blog entry, I went to three different events on Sunday, April 14, 2013. This began my History Workout/History Marathon. I went to the World War II event in Media, Pennsylvania specifically at the Colonial Plantation in Ridley Park. There were two tents and a small display outside and a few displays inside.

A Living Historian noticed I was wearing a 150th Civil War hat and he showed a knife to me. It was made from a Civil War sword during the World War II era so there are two historic aspects to the knife. It is pictured on the left:
