BDES students travel to American Civil War Museum

On Saturday, Jan. 11, students and parents from Bacon District Elementary School (BDES)
traveled to the American Civil War Museum in Appomattox. Students participated in education
programs during which they learned about life in the 1800s, Civil War artifacts, and the life of
Civil War soldiers. The students also toured the exhibits, which included hundreds of unique
Civil War artifacts and engrossed them in the personal stories of many people who lived through
the war. Pictured are BDES students and parents listening to a presentation on the life of soldiers
in the Civil War.
