Civil War Day

Eighth Grade students in my district spent a day at our city's historical museum experiencing the Civil War. Students learned about camp life, communications and telegraphing messages, boot making, marching and drilling, the life of Sojourner Truth and how to dance the Virginia Reel. (This is always my favorite session!) The day ended with an Abraham Lincoln re-enactor reciting the Gettysburg Address.

This day was fun and educational for all involved. Countless hours of preparation were spent by the presenters and students showed their appreciation by being attentive and asking questions.
