Living Historians Family of Sutlers

The reenactment community draws more than soldiers into its ranks . Some make a full-time living selling period merchandise to the general public and other reenactors. Knox and Mary Adler, along with their 10 children, began selling items at events in the year 2000. Twelve years later they have expanded and are still going strong, although with dwindling shop help as their kids grow and leave home.
