Two members of the Texas Time Travelers organization visited Stockdale Junior High School recently to do a presentation about life during the 1800s in Texas.

Our very own Helen Tillery, along with her husband, Barry, explained and demonstrated many everyday tasks that men and women had to deal with during this time period. They showed the students how to make fire with a flint rock, what different furs looked like and what purpose they served during that time, and also what the duties of women and men were during that time.

The students really enjoyed the fire and gun demonstrations, as well as being able to see what a real tent looked like, and see the minimal accommodations that people had to live with during that time period.

The students were able to visually see history, and what life was like during that time period. The students gained a great appreciation for what they have in their own everyday lives today.
