Medic at the Battle of Sacramento, Kentucky
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.
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.
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.
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.

I could not resist the sunset showing through this American flag.
Union troops at Pickett's Charge.  I was amazed at the youth that happily participated in this reenactment.
Loved the repetitive nature of this image.  These actors are dedicated to their hobby.
