April 20 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until April 23, 2021


WEEK OFFERED: APRIL 19 – 23, 2021 | TIME: 9:30-2:30

$6.75/student, $6.75/per chaperone (within ratio)

In the past few years we have received requests to be able to accommodate larger numbers of students, to have better weather, to be able to provide more interactive involvement and less lecture time in this class while still telling the stories you’ve come to enjoy. We are unable to do much about the weather, but we would like to present this opportunity to address the rest of the requests. The class will be relocated to Railroad Town, be set ups in stations, and be able to accommodate multiple classes at one time. The stations will include: Enlistment, 1861 Medical Exam, Tents and Shelters, Weapons of War, News of 1861, Military Drill Instruction, Women in the War & on the Home Front, Rations, Uniforms, Stories and Medicine during the War. Other stations may be added. Students will be able to spend more open ended time at each station.
