    Being an unlicensed driver I am guessing he is also uninsured, I hope Bill has good insurance. They took him to a different hospital from the one where he works so no employee discount.

    For the 1865 part, nothing, the locals have even less. This is after a very hard snowy winter and in the fall was "the burning". Which brings us to the little known First Battle of Waynesboro, that...

    I had written a reply that described period dyes and Confederate leather goods but then I read on to see if there were any other follow up questions. After seeing the comments posted by the junior...

    Smocks are in my mind a bit questionable for use. I can't find any American illustrations of their use, plenty of British and well later at that but here in the US they seemed to have fallen out of...

    I think you missed my point, a young man in 1820 would be dressed like an old man in 1860. So in paintings dating after the period you want to portray you need to look at the older men. In paintings...

    Another hint, and why I ask people their age, is that older men are in older fashions. A young man in the 1830s and an older man in the 60s could have a common look. This all gets altered by...

    Look at paintings by William Sidney Mount, George Caleb Bingham, and Thomas Waterman Wood. In that order by the way. (Wood did paint propaganda so ignore his military subjects.) Your shirt will be...

    What time period? A year or decade would help. If "old timey" then it is more like doing a Halloween costume and I can give you suggestions for what to look for in a thrift store. Place makes a bit...

    Seriously? The longevity based on a 1946 movie? I grew up using it and I think I might be younger than Bill Cross. There are a lot of expressions used by people that know more words than f**k and...

    Yes, that was a period expression

    In a now deleted post there was a misspelled version of an expression that I meant to look up at the time out of idle curiosity. While the original poster may have just fat fingered it and had meant...
