Joshua Miller and his brother-in-law Jack Kelso brought their families to New Salem in 1832.  They lived in opposite ends of the structure with the open area in the center serving as a dining/sitting area.
Joshua Miller, whose home is pictured previously, operated this blacksmith shop.  A very successful business, the shop was an integral supply point for surrounding farms.
This structure was raised not long after the founding of New Salem in 1828.  Nicknamed a "blab" school, the children who attended here learned by repeating, out loud, their daily lessons.

A open fire pit at an infantry campsite.
A different view if an artillery camp in Gettysburg.  Simplicity and authentic, right down to their eating and drinking utensils.
As sexy as a civil war re-enactment gets. :)
A large weaving loom in the summer kitchen...
Next door to the house is the small summer kitchen, detached from the main house to prevent fires and excessive heat entering the main house...
Isaac Gulihur, his wife, and one son only lived in New Salem for a couple years from 1832 to 1834.  After a failed bid to become the community coroner he packed up and moved to Knox County, IL.
