I am a research assistant at a museum and I have been given the opportunity to put up my own exhibit for display.
I am focusing on what people in the 1800s (in East Texas to be precise) might have carried and how it impacted their lives. I would also like to touch on how it could compare to our modern EDC practices.
Since I am still forming the story I want to tell, I need to find out more about what people might have carried (I am looking for any and all sources that may help), and what a people who come to see this exhibit might want to see.
Any discussion on the topic is welcome.
