Historical Antiques

Post by joecool on November 18th 2013, 5:23 pm

Swinging through Nebraska and Missouri last summer, I picked up a couple of antique documents that inspired me to decorate a whole wall. Almost went to the internet, but decided that a few hour's work there wouldn't be anywhere near as fulfilling as finding things on my own, and in person.

Saturday, I took my wife to a couple of antique malls in a neighboring city (in Montana, they're more than an hour away). I found a campaign card for Gen Garfield's presidential run in 1880 and added it to the wall. My goal is to get something for each "R" president.

Don't worry about it took months for me to do it. I figured it was easier to upload to photobucket and insert a link to point to it.

Laughing Nice! I like Photobucket for pictures that you want to post on here. Just create an account with them, and upload whatever you want to post. Then get the "forum code" for the image you want to post and paste it in to your message.

As far as your avatar goes, I crop the image to what you want to show. Then process it through an image resizer. I have one downloaded on both my laptop and my phone. I set the resizer to the 170x170 limit imposed by the website and there you go! Then paste the image code in.

Easy for you to say. My palm pilot is still a piece of paper that comes out of my pocket in 1.3 seconds.

I'm setting up a summer vacation in Boston for my wife and I, hopefully for this coming year. The place has to be crammed with colonial antiques. I enjoy watching Pawn Stars for all the historical items brought in. So many times, I have wanted to outbid Rick for stuff on the show.

The more reason to take your outpost towards FCF.... Wink even if you can't always go the official events because of the mixed genders. You guys could hold your own historical camps.

that is true we could do that Smile 
it would be harder for me having no FCF experience but not impossible.

Actually, Phillip brings up a good point.  You could do the FCF training locally, and they allow girls/women at regional Rendevous's and NMLA events.  

Also Michigan, Ohio, and points east have some historical homes, Teritorial Capitals, etc, that the kids could visit while in their Period Attire.

Chis, you got our experience to help you with FCF. Claymore, great idea using secular historical events to do FCF. That could be a missions field for your outpost too. Doesn't Simeon do regular events too?

It's worth a thought -- if I ever get caught up on this "Castle" that I've been building for the past 4 years.

You may find FCF-appropriate treasures in your own back yard.

During the war of 1812, there was a U.S. Fort constructed at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, because the Wisconsin/Fox Rivers controlled passage from the Great Lakes to Saint Louis & New Orleans.

There was a battle fought there in 1814, in which the British took control of the fort.

Many people didn't believe that Wisconsin had any history, much prior to the Civil War.
