Dr. Thomas Daniel Bloodsworth (portrayed by reenactor Thomas Bertrand) held office hours Saturday on the Gloucester court green, as part of the Revolutionary War encampment sponsored by the Gloucester Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department. Here, Dr. Bloodsworth explains some of his medical equipment to, from left, Lisa Overton (holding her baby Kendall) of Chesapeake, and her other children Kaylee, Kaya and Tyler. Mrs. Overton, who home-schools her children, made the trip to Gloucester for a hands-on history lesson. Photo by Charlie Koenig.
