As we celebrate our nation's Bicentennial, many of us wonder about these people who lived so long ago in Hampton. We know they had many of the same feelings we do, but realize their lives were different in many ways. This little booklet will give you a glimpse into their lives. We will take a look at the homes they lived in and the family life they shared, comparing what they ate, drank and wore with what we have today. Pretending we are back in their times, we will look at the jobs they had, how they worked and how they traveled from place to place. Yes, we will even follow the children to school and see how they played.
How lucky we are. We can take a look back at those Hampton citizens who lived 200 years ago and fought for our nation's liberty. They, on the other hand, could never have imagined what our life would be like today. Yet, they dreamed of a better life and struggled to make it possible for us.
