It's the stuff we usually read about in the history books, but Saturday visitors to the Little Bull Falls LogJam in Mosinee were invited to re-live history as more than one hundred historical re-enactors filled the grounds demonstrating what life was like for early Wisconsin settlers.
More than 35 camps dotted the Wisconsin River shore line, each re-enacting a particular part of history. Carol and Conrad Knuth's camp mimicked a pioneer camp from the 1820's.
The goal of their camp today, for Carol to explain ladies handiwork and for Conrad to demonstrate woodworking.
"Sometimes they [the public] know quite a bit, but if you can teach them one or two new things that they don't know and they're amazed at what they see then that's really rewarding," Knuth told NewsChannel 7.
She adds, "The other fun is to meet the other people who are doing crafts and watching them and you yourself learn are learning and interacting and having fun and always meeting new people and getting old friends together."
If you want to take your own trip back in time, the re-enactment continues through Sunday.
