Last night I went to another ball at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum with Mike, Maggie, and Isabella. This dance was in honor of the meeting convened by Major General Edward Braddock of five colonial governors at the Carlyle House in Alexandria, VA in 1755. As usual, the dancing was a great deal of fun and there were a number of beautiful outfits to behold. Lots of francaise gowns in a variety of fine silks. I was able to meet several other local costumers and a number of reenactors.
