Rally 'Round the Flag
Program to Go at your site
What was life like during the Civil War? If you were a soldier, how did you spend your day? How did troops communicate?
These hands-on programs bring Civil War history to life at our site or at your school. Students use their inquisitiveness and historical thinking skills to enter the past and gain a deeper understanding of the Civil War. Students can learn signal wig-wag, drill in the infantry or artillery, build a pontoon bridge, practice the skills of the hospital corps, question a Civil War soldier, learn codes and ciphers, and more.

Civil War Soldier
Codes and Ciphers
Artillery Corps: Math on Target
Engineer Corps: Team Building through Bridge Building
Letters From (and To) Home
Drill, Drill, Drill
