LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Families take a trip back in time by visiting a historical site in their own backyard.
George Rogers Clark Days gave everyone a chance to see how people lived during the Revolutionary War.
Several old cabins were built close to the site where Clark actually lived hundreds of years ago.
They are filled with artifacts that show what life was like back then.
This weekend event also showed families the weapons and tools of the era.
Some kids even got to try them out.
"In high school, learning history was all names and dates, and very boring. And as I became an adult, I found a love of history through the artifacts that I had discovered just perusing various historical events," says historical reenactor Christopher Gregg.
The Clark home site is part of the Falls of the Ohio State Park.
