Born in Springfield, Missouri, became an American history enthusiast, relocated to Colorado, and eventually started an American history educational non-profit called "You Can Live History", in 1991.
Since then I have made history interesting and fun for people of all ages. So far, over 100,000 people have participated. We believe that serious learning can also be fun! Education which involves a person will always be more effective than that which does not.
You provide the participants and location - we provide everything else to make a safe and realistic looking battle reenactment. In addition, we produce a video of the battle starring YOU! Or maybe you would prefer a Victorian Ball, with live musicians and dance instruction.
We offer affordable programs for: Schools, companies, foundations, and camps. For your convenience, we will travel to your location.
MY MISSION STATEMENT
"To understand the world we live in today we must know our history. To live our history, learn from our history and use our history for a better tomorrow. This is the mission of YCLH.
YCLH engages today's youth in our past through historical reenactments. These reenactments give students the opportunity to experience the hardships and strains of war, while developing critical thinking skills about history and understanding how our past has shaped our present.
As time marches on, history marches with it never leaving us. May we never stop learning and growing from those that came before us."
