“Have you ever thought about what life would have been like had you been born in the late 1700’s – during the Revolutionary War Era?
“Have you ever thought about what life would have been like had you been born in the late 1700’s – during the Revolutionary War Era? In what kind of house would you live? What kind of music would you play” What was life really like 240 years ago?” This was the opening of a slide presentation presented by Martha Koletar to five, 7th-grade classes at South Brunswick Middle School.
Dressed as Betsy Ross, Martha compared the differences in the lives of children born in Colonial Times to the lives that today’s children enjoy. She took them back to a time when there were no computers, no cell phones, and no fast-food restaurants and transported them through the social and political climate of the times.
The Seventh Grade Social Studies and History Departments put the special program together that gave historical perspectives beginning with the Renaissance through the Colonial Period. Martha’s presentation was, but one of many historical programs presented. Some students dressed in Colonial and Renaissance costumes
Phyllis Wilson, also dressed in Colonial Attire, accompanied Martha and took pictures and assisted her with a display of Revolutionary era toys. We gave Constitution Bookmarks to the teachers for distribution to students.
Phyllis and Martha then met Kathy Miller (all in period costume) to have lunch and “a spot of tea” at the quaint Southport Tea House.
L to R: Martha Koletar, Phyllis Wilson and Kathy Miller had lunch and tea at the Southport Tea House.

125th Anniversary for Daughters
This year The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is celebrating their 125th anniversary. The DAR was officially formed on October 11, 1890, and 125 years later all the chapters nationwide are making an effort to illustrate our National Society’s collective commitment to America by serving our communities on the National DAR Day of Service. All the DAR chapters in North Carolina and nationwide are doing special things to honor this occasion.
Brunswick Town DAR Chapter volunteered to assist at the Port Brunswick Day on October 24th by volunteering at various stations around Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson. They worked at the Quill Writing/Letter Sealing station, Stenciling, Create a Tricorn Hat, Toys and Games. It was amazing to see so many students visiting Brunswick Town and participating in the different activities. Ten exhibit stations were set up along the site's trail, featuring candle dippers, colonial dentistry, naval stores and woodworking among other demonstrations. Interpreters with knowledge of each task were on hand to explain the process of each. There also were small arms demonstrations. The colonial period and the role of the craftspeople was the focus of Brunswick Town-Fort Anderson State Historic Site’s Port Brunswick Days event.
