The first-ever living history program at Graeme Park will demonstrate holiday traditions during wartime.
Do you ever wonder how soldiers embroiled in combat celebrate Christmas? It may depend on a few things, most notably the time period and what soldiers had on hand, according to Beth MacCausland, co-chair of a soldiers’ Christmas living history program coming to Graeme Park on Nov. 24. “(Revolutionary War soldiers) didn’t really celebrate Christmas like we do,” MacCausland said. “It was more new years.” Living historians will be on hand to tell guests what they got over the holiday season and what was going on around Graeme Park nearly 300 years ago when Sir William Keith, the former governor of Pennsylvania, lived at what is now the 42-acre historic site. In addition to soldiers representing the Revolutionary War, MacCausland said Civil …
