Aspen Academy 5th Graders Re-enact A Civil War Battle

Aspen Academy 5th graders staged a re-enactment of a Civil War battle complete with makeshift cannons and a hospital. ‘Generals Lee and Grant’ led their troops into battle using plastic balls as ammunition and victory was defined by capturing the opponents’ flag.

Our students learned how the United States was divided at the outbreak of the Civil War as well as how civil rights and liberties expanded as a result of the Civil War/Reconstruction period.
