Humidity hangs heavy in the air at East Harbor State Park, but the wool-clad Civil War soldiers don't seem to notice. They're busy hammering away, setting up canvas tents and polishing Gatling guns -- all circa 1860. Around suppertime, the women will haul out their kettles and cook over an open fire, bonnet and all. A Blackfoot Native American chief roams the grounds, teaching folklore and sign language.
It's the perfect place to take a peek into the past.
