Revoutionary War Army Bread Oven recreation
« on: September 23, 2013, 10:29:57 PM »
My brother is involved with a group that is building a memorial "camp" in Fishkill New York to celebrate the soldiers of the revolutionary war who camped there and many who are buried on the grounds.  He recently attended a reenactment weekend and took these pictures of the bread oven that volunteers built on the site.  He did not report on the bread, nor did they bake memorial pizzas.  :-D

I thought this group would find these pictures of interest.

So much history back up there. Miss it sometimes.

Cool pics of the replica oven.

Great share.  I wish that I had a digital camera when I helped restore historic beehive ovens....the earliest one we repaired was built in the late 1600's.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
