My plan was to write a short blog post on “camp followers” and as I started digging in the internet I ran across this engrossing article from the Colonial Williamsburg Interpreter.
I stopped right there. No matter what I could have come up with it would not hold a candle to this article! I just had to pass this on!
It is written by Kaia Danyluk. Kaia is a graduate of William and Mary College and former member of the Williamsburg interpretive staff at the Military Encampment.
It is a tad lengthy but a fascinating well researched read. You will find it HERE on the Colonial Williamsburg site. Bookmark it and read it when you have a few minutes. Time well spent!
