Programs for eighth grade only
Civil War Days at the Troy Historic Village is a full day American Civil War experience for local 8th grade classes. Students learn about President Lincoln and the telegraph, military life for a soldier, what the folks back home were doing, and more.
Students rotate through six stations for presentations from authentically-costumed reenactors, or take part in period activities designed to reinforce classroom instruction about this pivotal moment in American history.
Students are also assigned a “Soldier Card”. Drawn from real southeast Michigan Civil War soldiers, each card bears a soldiers name, rank, hometown, and date of enlistment.
To register for this very popular May program, please contact the village by the first Friday in August.
