We figure there’s no better YouTube channel to feature during the month of Independence Day than Townsends, which takes a look at what life was like during the era of the American Revolution. Jon Townsend and his family opened their Pierceton, Indiana, store in 1973. Over the years, Townsends has become the go-to supplier for clothing, cookware, and other items made to look and feel like authentic goods from centuries ago. They’ve even become a regular supplier to Mount Vernon, George Washington’s famous estate. With the rise of YouTube, Jim Townsend saw an opportunity to share some insight into how the first Americans lived and to connect with customers old and new. His channel, simply named Townsends, covers many aspects of 18th-century life, including how laundry was done and how to build an earthen oven. A great many videos, however, are devoted to the recipe and culinary methods of our past. Perhaps the best way to give you a sense of what you’ll find on Townsends is to describe their most popular video,“Fried Chicken in the 18th Century? 300-Year-Old

Recipe.” Townsend appears in the garb of a militiaman, down to the three-cornered hat. He seems to be in the middle of the woods, where he’ll be showing us how to replicate a 1736 recipe for fried chicken. As he prepares the dish, Townsend discusses the historical traditions related to the recipe and the people who made it. In these food-focused videos, Townsends is a bit like a cross between the Food Network and the History Channel —well, maybe the History Channel of 20 years ago. When we learn about history, it’s often on the grandest of scales. We read about the epochal battles that changed thousands of lives and the inventions and works of art that shaped society and culture as we know it. Just as interesting, though, can be investigating how regular people lived on a day-to-day basis. Townsends is devoted to sharing this kind of history, and the internet is better off for it. P.S. You’ll definitely want to try out that fried chicken recipe for yourself. It’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted, yet somehow strangely familiar.
