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.

Choose one or more components. Combine 4-6 components for an all-day Civil War program:
