Be sure to bring your kids this Saturday (November 5) to the Living History of the Civil War at the Library. There will be two special events for kids. Participants in the morning and afternoon kids “muster” will learn what it was like to be a new recruit in the Civil War. Tour the camp, dress like a soldier, train with re-enactors, and take home your very own soldier’s packet.
10:30 – 12:00 Kids Morning Muster
2:30 – 3:30 Kids Afternoon Muster
And if you’re interested in learning how the Civil War affected children, be sure to take out a copy of James Marten’s The Children’s Civil War, available at the CPL.
