For all who love history - and not just history - but the history of how our great country began - this site is for you! Brave men and women took a stand over 230 years ago against tyranny and won! A nation of immigrants began its trek to becoming the greatest nation in the world.
There are many every day items we take for granted. While I was in Williamsburg, I decided to snap pictures of tools used by the people during the 17th and 18th centuries. Some of these items you might recognize. Others will be a mystery to you. All of them were used by people who lived then. I am sure if some of them saw the items we use today - cameras, cell phones, televisions, they would be confused as well. Enjoy the pictures and think about how life was different for people who lived them. If you can guess them, let me know. I'll number the pictures. Reply back and tell me what you think the item is and what it was used for. Happy hunting!
