|We met our friends at the Fort|
|We learned old fashioned games like pushing a hoop and the ring toss. |
It wasn't as easy as it looked.
Then we went in to the barracks and the soldiers showed us the uniforms they have to wear. They are mostly made out of wool.
I like wearing the soldiers hat. Later on, they showed us how to stand at attention and hold our weapons.
The ladies of the fort showed the girls what kind of clothes women had to wear in the 1880's. There were bloomers and slips and bustles, corsets, capes and bonnets.
Some of the girls got to try on clothes that little girls would've worn back then.
There were many nice people who told us about what it was like to live here back then.
There was only a few stops between San Antonio and El Paso and the road was very dangerous. It was hard to get supplies
All of their supplies had to be transported by wagons from very long distances away.
All of the supplies were kept in the commissary, which was like the grocery store at the fort.
|The wood burning stove was very hot.|
