Now Colonial Williamsburg has posted this video teaser for the exhibition on their own website that includes not only the original pieces from their collections that will be on display, but also the replicas being worn –– many of which will be very familiar to readers of this blog.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
