The Monterey Pass Battlefield Institution has been around for many years now. During that time, we have developed many programs that were demonstrated at various networks of historical sites. South Mountain State Battlefield, Antietam National Battlefield, Renfrew Museum & Park and Old Bedford Village. While, working civilians programs are harder to do as many parks don't want to hurt the integrity of their resource, we have found many ways of doing programs without jeopardizing the historical resources.

We recently purchased several implements that one would have seen around a farm, home and or in town during the mid 1800's. The photograph is based upon two impressions more or less warmer weather and cooler weather. The press is close to the period and is original.
