No, but I've demonstrated distilling while in period clothing.
"Hey, they've got a still!" (No, it's a toilet for distance flushes.)
"Can I have some of that stuff coming out?" (Sure. Just lay under the end of the worm and open your mouth. Mind now, it's just a tad hot....)
"Is that a real gun?" (No, it's a toy caplock water gun.)
"Do you know where the bathroom is?" (Yes. Do you?)
"Is that a REAL fire?" (One of my favorites, and from an adult at that.)
Or things I've overheard:
"It's not a real bayonet, Maude. They wouldn't let them have real bayonets." (Wanna bet?)
"Wow. I didn't know you could eat blackberries!"
"They didn't have guns in the American Revolution, Henry. They hadn't been invented yet."
"Okay kids. This is Yorktown, where Grant surrendered to Lee."
"They're actors and they get paid a lot of money for doing this."
