They should have visited The Battle of Aiken in Feb if they wanted to learn about The War Between the States.

how could they attend when everytime you turn around these kids are out on some kind of school break? why are people surprised when they see these kids failing grades? they're hardly in school most of the year.

Yes the battle of Aiken would

Yes the battle of Aiken would be a wonderful experience for the children. They would be able to do much more than they did with the reenactors at school. But with all things there is a cost. The students would have been responsible for paying for the bus milage and for the extra drivers. With 150 students we would have needed at least 4 buses and it would have been 62 miles round trip (from the garage, to school, to battle and back). On top of the financial aspect of the trip there are also permission slips, lunches, and chaperones to worry about. So we did the best we could for our students by bringing the Civil War to them. Oh and by the way the reenactors traveled 7 hours all of the way from Virginia to spend two days with our kids teaching them about the Civil War...all for FREE.
