NCHEA 2010: The drama

A visit to the blacksmiths leads to a lively discussion regarding King George.

Back home, Elias & Susanna Hart discuss the uncertain future in light of current events.

And enjoy a social gathering amongst the neighbors.

"But if we stop drinking tea, what will we drink for our afternoon -- tea?!?!"

Contemplating a trip to the bustling town of Boston.

"What will Boston be like?!"

The grand, but orderly Boston Tea Party

"I'm lost!"

"But why are you dressed like an Indian?!"

Returning home to find the unexpected -- their barn destroyed by the Tories.

"When did this happen?"

"We must forgive them"

"We are the Minutemen!"

The Battle
Bandaging the wounded

...Grief...

"What is this freedom you died for?"

"Its easy! Just watch and learn!"

British war plans

On guard duty

Reporting to General Washington

The war is over!!!

"The fight for liberty is never over. As long as there are men and women bound by the chains of sin, the war will continue. It’s not just about a country seeking freedom. That kind of freedom is important, but it can only be maintained as the people in that land have personal liberty through Jesus Christ.

This is the war we continue to fight.


"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."

John 8:36

Sounds like you had such a wonderful time, Bethany, photographing the play! Our church recently did a play on diligence based on Proverbs 6:6-8, taking place in the 1800s and it was such a blessing. Looks like yours was, too! :)

Joyfully in Jesus,
Elizabeth
