The Magical History Tour
My name is Shawn MacIntyre, I have been a history enthusiast all my life. . I graduated from Point Park University, Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in history. In November of 2021, I completed my Master of Arts Degree in American History. My primary focus is in history in North America from the pre-colonial era to the American Civil War.
I have worked as a volunteer at the Heinz History Center. I did my senior internship at the Fort Pitt Museum as a living history intern, and in 2019 and 2020 I worked as a tour guide and historical interpreter at the Meadowcroft Museum and Rockshelter. In April of 2021, I became the Museum Facilitator at Bushy Run Battlefield in Jeanette, PA, the paramount battle of Pontiac’s War. In May of 2022, I became the Public Engagement and Operations Manager for Braddock’s Battlefield History Center.
I have been a part of living history for nearly twenty years with the Society for Creative Anachronism, A medieval re-creation group. I am also a part of Captain William Trent’s Company, a French and Indian War and 18th-century reenactment group.
My blog and my page will contain photographs and information about historic places I visit, as well as, articles I have written. A secondary page will feature my writings, research and classes that I teach within the Society for Creative Anachronism. My hope is to get more people involved in Hands-on History. I hope you enjoy your visits!
