Living History

Costumed interpretation is offered daily in the Military Encampment and as staffing allows at Tudor Hall Plantation.  Park historians wear reproduction clothing and engage in historically accurate activities as well as presenting scheduled programs throughout the day.

Military Interpreters

Historians portraying Confederate soldiers inhabit the Military Encampment or the Fortifications exhibit. In addition to scheduled programs, the military interpreters demonstrate soldier life skills, fire weapons, and discuss the clothing and equipment worn by soldiers during the Civil War.

Civilian Interpreters

Park historians at the Tudor Hall’s kitchen, gardens, or Field Quarter demonstrate various aspects of agricultural life on an antebellum Southern plantation. On any given day, meals may be prepared in the kitchen, vegetables harvested out of the garden, crops tended in the field, or farm crafts practiced.
