#trainfacttuesday On May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit in the Utah Territory, Leland Stanford connected the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads by driving a 17.6-karat gold stake into the rails of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Join us May 10 & May 11 as we remember and celebrate the 150th Anniversary of this iconic moment of railroad history aboard the No. 17 to Hanover Junction. #steamintohistory #sih #No17 #steamtrain #dieseltrain #livinghistory #history #civilwar #gettysburg #trainloversofinstagram #allaboard #soyoco #ychrt

A drummer. During the annual reenactment of the revolutionary war Battle of Monmouth, a drummer pauses during the action, awaiting instruction on what beats to drum next. During battle, music was often used to communicate directions to soldier as the music could be heard over the gun and cannon fire. #mollypicturestudio #america #history #revolutionarywar #photography #livinghistory #reenactor #reenactment #americanhistory #history #military #battle #militaryhistory #costuming #costumer #larp #cosplay #larpusa #larpphiladelphia #larpnewjersey #larppennsylvania #mollypicturestudio @natgeo @natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeoyourshot

Heute kann ich euch wieder einmal eine Kundenanfertigung zeigen: Nestelbänder. Die Kundin hat sich die Bänder in Wollweiß und Weiß gewünscht (der Farbunterschied ist in natura wesentlich größer als auf dem Foto). Die Bänder wurden in Fingerlooptechnik aus 7 Schlaufen (14 einzelnen Fäden) geflochten und bestehen aus sehr stabilem Leinengarn. Das Band in Grün-Weiß ist ein Beispiel wie das Ganze auch mit Farbe aussehen könnte, es wurde aus 6 Schlaufen (12 einzelnen Fäden) geflochten. Die Bänder sind jeweils zwischen 60 und 70cm lang und können entweder im Ganzen verwendet werden oder auch wunderbar zu zwei kürzeren Nesteln (z.B. für Ärmel) geteilt werden. Auch die passenden Nestelspitzen aus Messing könnt ihr bei mir bekommen :) #alteshandwerk #handwerk #handarbeit #fingerloop #larp #liveactionroleplay #reenactment #livinghistory

One of our favourite shots from the past few years - a perfectly timed photo by Ruth Lochrie of the moment a matchlock musket begins to fire. After dipping the lit match in the 'pan' on the side of the gun, the gunpowder rapidly converts to gas and heat - the pan directs this cloud outwards but in the narrow breech the energy has nowhere to go other than along the barrel. It's this process that creates the force to propel a musketball at high velocity. It's a split second action, but one full of fire and noise! . #musket #musketeer #fire #smoke #photoreenactment #reenactment #reenactors #reenacting #reenactorstyle #reenactorslife #reenactinglife #reenactorsofinstagram #reenactmentphotography #livinghistory #history #photohistory #reenacting #historicalreenactment #history #historicalcostume #17thcentury #sealedknot #dailyphoto #photoaday #photooftheday #photoadaychallenge #historyhit #englishcivilwar #instadaily
Na zdjęciu widoczne są kamienne bloki skalne w Pompejach. Umożliwiały one mieszkańcom nie brudzić się i nie chodzić po niższym poziomie drogi, gdzie też gromadziły się wszelkie nieczystości. Bardzo często Rzymianie wszelkie nieczystości wylewali na ulice. Co warte odnotowania, bloki skalne były umieszczane w taki sposób, aby drogą mogły przejechać wozy transportowe. Po dziś dzień, w niektórych miejscach widoczne są ślady po kołach. ------------ The picture shows stone blocks in Pompeii. They made it possible for residents not to get dirty and not to walk on the lower level of the road, where all impurities accumulated. Often the Romans poured out all impurities on the streets. It is noteworthy that the rock blocks were placed in such a way that the transport vehicles could pass the road. To this day, some traces of wheels are visible in some places. #imperiumromanum #historia #ciekawostkihistoryczne #rzym #ciekawostki #starozytnyrzym #instagood #SPQR #instaboy #antycznyrzym #rzymianie #antyk #romans #ancientrome #beautiful #livinghistory

When your opponent places his shield on top of yours, then shift your weight to your back foot and collapse your shield into his. A good counter against being overbound, though it does require some decent distance-management. Go to far back and controlling your opponent's shield will be difficult. To close, and there won't be enough room to move your shield. Thanks to @cubey666 for assisting and @oskarmesserfechter for lending me his gopro. #hema #hemanederland #historicaleuropeanmartialarts #historiceuropeanmartialarts #historicalfencing #historicfencing #historicalcombat #history #livinghistory #experiments #technique #medieval #earlymedieval #medievalcombat #martialarts #martialartslife #fightingfit #fighting #fitdutchies #vikings #vikingcombat #vikingmartialarts #swords #vikingsword #swordandshield #shield #vikingshield #shieldbind #projectshieldgif

It’s been a long time since I have done any leatherwork. Knocked out three Civil War belts. First time working with iron dye. It was interesting. Top: Single billet civilian waist belt. Middle: 2” roller buckle belt. Bottom: Stamped brass confederate belt plate on 2” belt. #leather #leatherwork #leatherworking #leathercraft #1860s #1860sfashion #americancivilwar #civilwaruniforms #civilwaruniform #livinghistory #reenactor #reenactors #civilwar #confederate #confederatereenactors #union #unionreenactor #reenactment #reenactorsofinstagram #acw #handsewn #handsewing #uniform #uniforms
“What your eyes take in, what your nose smells, what your ears hear, what you feel inside you all come together, they penetrate you completely. And they become intermingled — the sights, smells, noises or lack of noises, that flush of adrenaline, that tightening up of your insides, the choking feeling on the throat, the tingling feeling on the back of your neck — all come together and become you. A different you than you remember as a kid playing, or as a student studying. You are something else now. You have been made over – inside and out . . .” 📚Appel, Robert S., comp. "The Outdoor Kids of Company B, 7th Infantry Regiment, Third Division, U.S. Army." Kearney, NE: Morris Pub., 2004.

Originally wiking5thss, we have become Die Frontschwein. The change is mainly due to our portrayal of multiple units (12th SS and 5th SS for example) as well as too further our authenticity. Just this past weekend, we had our first official event as a new unit and man do we have photos to post soon. #ww2 #reenacting #ww2reenacting #reenactment #12thss #photography #ww2german #german #germany #comingsoon #wiking #livinghistory #Texas #MAGI #Houston #Dallas #Austin
I’m pretty glad there’s enough daylight after work to go visit some local trails. Hail to spring!!
This is the third item I entered into Kingdom A&S. This is my version of the Lettice Cap. I used the @thetudortailor 's pattern. The challenge for this piece was my Laurel gave me old fur coat to use. There were weak spots that I needed to work around. I think I will shave this down, as lettice fur has a much shorter pile. It was fun to make. #letticecap #thetudortailor #ealdormere #emeloteAS #historicalrecreator #historicalcostume #historicalhats #fur #reenactment #reenactor #societyforcreativeanachronism #mySCA #sca #livinghistory #16thcentury #tudor #tudorhats #tudorhatsofinstagram
