I’ve always wanted to host a Civil War Christmas educational event, but December always gets so crazy busy. This year McGuire Home Winchester, Virginia, Civil War Living History hosted “Christmas in July” – a tea and educational event.
We had a lot of fun decorating the room with items which might have been used in a Civil War Christmas celebration.
The dramatic presentation “Christmas in Winchester” took our guests through five Christmases at the McGuire Home (1861-1865) and emphasized the importance of courage and family love.
Here’s a few photos of the event – and Happy Christmas (in July)!
