Seventh and eighth grade students at NMS traveled back in time to the Civil War days via a Civil War encampment of reenactors from Boots & Saddles Productions. Fifteen reenactors, with a deep knowledge and passion for the US Civil War, performed at five different stations for groups of students. Stations covered the US Cavalry, complete with horses, Confederate and Union infantry demonstrations, an exploration of the time period’s kitchen and cooking, a Civil War medical tent, and an artillery station complete with an authentic war canon.

The program was exciting and informative, and students had many questions for the reenactors, sparking a deeper interest in the United States’ history.
