Reenactors rough it out through rainy weekend

 

The 24th annual Grand Rogue Military Encampment has been cancelled in the past due to extreme flooding, but this year’s event was a little soggy due to rain showers. A historic bonanza of knowledge and authentic clothes and equipment showed visitors what life was like before electricity, both in military reenactment and family settings.

The event takes place each year at Grand Rogue Campground on West River Drive, and many repeat participants show what life was like from the time of the French and Indian War in the 1700s on up through the centuries. To find out more, visit grandrogueencampment.com.
