For the last couple weeks, I've enjoyed showing you the beautifully decorated tables at the post surgeon's and officers' homes. Life was different for the enlisted men. They ate at Spartan tables, and you don't see any candy-topped cakes here.
And, yet, they did their best to decorate their quarters.
The tree looks almost as if it were a tumbleweed. (Perhaps it was.) Even with only a few gingerbread men hanging from it, I imagine this humble tree helped bring the joy of Christmas to the soldiers' lives.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
