Civil War Day reenactments

Civil War Day Starts with a Bang

Seventh grade students at Middle School North were treated to a day of Civil War reenactments. They watched a Civil War era cannon go off, and listened to actors portraying characters such as President Lincoln, General Lee, Mary Todd Lincoln, a surgeon and a preacher from the South. Students joined in the fun. They played a vintage form of baseball and learned how to keep a battle line straight.
