Susan Hodges
the living historian!
Susan (class of 1968) has been very active in the hobby of Revolutionary War reenactment
for many years. It's obvious she plays the parts well and is very convincing.
Here are some photos
displaying her craft.
Some of our fellow students have stepped back in time. From the Revolutionary
War
to the U.S. Civil War, BRHS almni relive many historic events and
experience the daily life and hardships of civilians and soldiers alike.
