1812 at Hearthside

This past month I enjoyed a step back to the year of 1812, The docents and myself dressed in that period and open the house for a  guided tour of actual artifacts from the War of 1812.







 On display was the  Guerriere's bell and a model of the U.S.S. Constitution. Part of this wonderful exhibit was navigation equipment used on early Naval ships.  One of the docents gave information about the battle with the Guerriere.
