Educating the Future
The Lincoln Pioneer Village and Museum played host to a large group of kids on a tour organized by Owensboro Parks and Recreation early Thursday, 20 June 2019. While one bus experienced a malfunction and could not make it across the river for the visit, nearly 80 youths as well as guides explored the replica cabins representing the environment that raised a young Abe Lincoln. Re-enactors completed the aesthetic, hosting a number of activities representing pioneer life and even the American Civil War. Here SUVCW Foster Camp commander Dennis Hutchinson leads a group of kids through some of the simple infantry maneuvers with mock muskets. He also explained some other aspects of life for soldiers in the war that defined Lincoln’s legacy.
