The Second NJ Civil War Brigade

The Second NJ Civil War Brigade visited to share what life was like during the Civil War.  Three members of the brigade came.  Each set up a different station.  One was Infantry Drill, one was a Field hospital, and one was a Soldier's Life.  They came in full uniform and brought lots of authentic items of the time period-- medical supplies, clothing, gear, muskets, etc.- and they engaged the students in interactive activities that helped them relate to Civil War history.
  It was fascinating!
