Civil War

Chandler's favorite subject in school right now is History. Over Veteran's Day we took him to see a Civil War reenactment that was amazing. We totally immersed ourselves in the time period. The actors talk in first person, and they camp out for the whole weekend. We were able to see their weapons, clothes, food and living quarters. It was so exciting that we went to the library to check out more books about what life was like then. The soldiers recreate the battles and even shoot canons. At the end of the war President Lincoln delivers the Gettysburg address. It was so realistic.

Did you go to the one in Thousand Oaks/Simi Valley? Micaiah went there too and LOVED it (see my post). I'd like to go sometime too when the girls are older.
