One of the very special touches during living history weekends at Fort Atkinson, Nebraska, is the preparation and serving of a formal dinner. Guests pay for the privilege of dining with the colonel and another officer. As far as is possible, all the food is prepared as it would have been in the 1820's and on site. This is the kitchen for the officers' mess.

I love the perspective, Nikki, and coupled with the straw broom, I got the notion of Cinderella's mice hoping for an after-dinner crumb or two. Very nice photo!

You got down for this one, didn't you? My goodness, look at the size of the pile of ashes. Makes me think about what it would be like actually having to cook on a wood fire inside.
