Students take part in Civil War days at the Center for History


Some PHM students spent Wednesday getting hands-on look at history.  They took a trip back to the Civil War era thanks to the Center for History in South Bend.

They learned about the Civil War with the help of both Union and Confederate Reenactors. 

Participants say the program can help distill a lot of information into a short presentation.  "There's not enough time anymore to cover all the history we have, so the groups that do Civil War Reenacting, that do World War II, reenacting are going out and educating them in that way," said Reenactor Kenneth Wade.

The reenactors focused on what everyday life was like for people at the time of the Civil War.
