All 3 pieces were done while I was working at the Saratoga National Historical Park in the summer of 1998. I had just completed my BA in History from SUNY New Paltz, & applied for an Interpretive Seasonal Park Ranger position. The other interpretive rangers were well versed in re-enacting, while I was just getting my feet wet as a tour guide. While out at Stop 2- the Nielsen Farm, I was getting tired of reading books waiting for visitors. So, I picked up embroidery & have been doing it ever since.
