Clothing Guidelines for the 2010 Event

The people we portray in living history deserve our best efforts. Remember, they can no longer speak for or represent themselves. When done well, living history can be a unique way to honor them and restore a touch of humanity to their memories.

The reputation of Minute Man National Historical Park, as well as every living history group participating in a park event, depends upon everyone striving for and maintaining the highest possible degree of historical authenticity. This includes authenticity in period dress and accoutrements, character role portrayals, and demonstrations.

The following guidelines were approved by The Battle Road Committee.

Thank you.
