    A great item for your or someone else's impression. I include one for our boys at our mail call. The boys love it. If you are looking for something a little different to offer your reenactors-this is it.

    A great piece of everyday life in 1864. The articles, and advertisements give one a real view of everyday life in 1864.

    Prairie Farmer Magazine - A Good Read

    Posted by Charles Edward Lee on 26th May 2019

    This issue of the Prairie Farmer magazine is from 1864, making it of limited utility for the re-enactor or living historian who is a stickler for time placement accuracy for their pocket, or carpetbag detritus. It obviously limits its usefulnesd to the late Civil War (or beyond) period. That said, it’s a valuable item in helping develop a period personae, or providing the kinds of things a person in that period might be toting around. Perhaps one of its redeeming qualities, apart from NOT being yet another Harper’s Werkly reprint from the war, is that it is common and ordinary, in and of itself. There are no huge historical insights revealed by it; it is the sort of publication you might find in a man’s carpet bag, or the capacious pockets of his coat; or on the table at home, or on a table in the barber’s establishment. It is everyday - and that is as it should be. A valuable, if time-restricted, addition to your public reading library for events in 1864 or later.
