Rick Sheets at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest

Rick Thos Jeff Home

Rick Sheets, our North Carolina compatriot, interpreted Revolutionary War engraved powder horns, accoutrements and flintlock arms to the public at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest in Lynchburg, Virginia at its Independence Day Celebration on July 4th, 2016. This is Rick’s fifth year. He was joined by his girlfriend Pam Lappegard who makes powder horn straps. Pictured are friends and fellow Colonial artisans Jeff Bibb (of Monroe, Virginia) on left and Clinton Byers (of Boone, North Carolina) on the right  with Rick Sheets in the middle. The weather cooperated with just a few light showers, the public enjoyed lots of re-enactors and activities. See http://poplarforest.org/ to learn about Thomas Jefferson’s “other” home.
