Jump right in to history as park educators deliver informative programs using fun, hands-on techniques to teach historical lessons. These programs are specifically designed for children in grade levels 3 through 12. Programs include:
Duty Called Me Here
This exhibit brings visitors face-to-face with the experiences of the nearly three million Americans who became soldiers during the Civil War. Personal audio players enable students to follow the true story of a “soldier comrade” through this award-winning interactive exhibit.
A Soldier’s Life
Students participate in military drill, observe weapons demonstrations, and visit the park’s recreated Military Encampment, where they experience elements of a soldier’s life.
Students study how free and enslaved Virginia families lived 150 years ago, and how that lifestyle changed during the Civil War.
