Dear Public:

You are invited to Friday night Camanche Middle School Civil War Days.

Come and enjoy the evening 

Talk with soldiers about the War of the Rebellion
Come and smell the wood smoke

How women coped with the hardships of war
See how soldiers were cared for by the Doctors, Hospital Stewards & Nurses

Come and help unfold the folds of American Civil War
What folds you ask?

How many young boys under 18 fought? 

How many of those  boys under the age of 18, were recipients of the Medal of Honor?

When was the Medal of Honor Created?

Who proposed the creation of such a Medal?
What did it look like?

How many theaters of war were there & what states did they involve?

What is the Trans-Mississippi?

What Battles beside Gettysburg were important to turning the tide of war for the Union?

Did women disguise themselves as men and go off to war?

How far west did the war go?

What battle was the Gettysburg of the West?

So, you see, there is a lot to find out & experience on your evening of helping; Keep History Alive.  

We are in the planning stages and do hope to have one or both Lincolns for talks and tea.  .
