Civil War History Tent@NPS
May 25, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
For many American soldiers of the 1860s, the Civil War was their first extended absence from home. There were few greater pleasures in camp than receiving mail from loved ones. Join a ranger in a Civil War tent to learn more about the Civil War through personal letters. Then, using a quill and ink, write a letter to a US soldier. Letters will be mailed to American soldiers overseas. Ages 8 to 12 and families.
