Cumberland Gap Tennessee
Free to the Public
The streets of the Town of Cumberland Gap, TN., Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Ky Wilderness Road State Park, VA. 3 counties, 3 states, one event
This FREE one-of-a-kind 3-day event combines genealogy with period re-en-actors and craftsmen in an historic setting. Lectures by nationally renowned speakers and award winning authors
With the growing popularity of genealogy and the need to re-enforce the teaching of history an event such as the Jamboree can be instrumental in teaching both young and old alike how our forefathers lived and conducted their day-to-day lives, and in a fun way!
In the streets of beautiful Cumberland Gap re-en-actors in period costumes will demonstrate the skills and crafts that was required of our ancestors on a near daily basis. Craftsmen demonstrating leather craft, soap making, Dutch Oven cooking, apple butter making, basket making, and many other crafts and skills will be demonstrated. Revolutionary War and Civil War re-en-actors will also be on hand for demonstrations and talks about the period and their equipment. Native Americans, dressed in tribal regalia, will also be represented.
Since genealogy is the primary focus of this event attendees will be able to research their family trees through pedigree charts, family surname tables and the many genealogical/historical societies, which will be represented. You will learn how to start researching your family tree by attending some of the lectures and talking with other interested parties at the event. Book vendors of genealogical materials, period novels, and interesting and informative books on folk heroes such as Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett will also be for sale.
