Martin Station

 am a little behind on posint. Last Friday we went to Martin Station for history field trip. They had characters in dress and we toured the fort, learned about canons, muskets, and how things were done in the late 1700's.
This place is so lovely. It is nestled at the edge of the beautiful Cumberland Mountains.

Musket fire.

What a soldier would carry in his pack in the late 1700's.
