Children’s Civil War Experience Weekend
This event posted by: kmmeacham
The Pry House Field Hospital Museum, at Antietam National Battlefield, will host its annual Children’s Experience Weekend on July 19-20, 2014. Children of all ages and their families can visit the Pry House to participate in programs designed just for them.
Visitors can try their hands at a number of toys and games which were popular with families in the Civil War era. Children and parents alike can learn about how important letters were to soldiers and their families during the Civil war; visitors may write their own letters and practice penmanship using period-correct dip ink pens. Children can also make authentic 19th century crafts to take home, including rag dolls and clay marbles. A reproduction Civil War ambulance will also be on display for visitors to see, touch, and climb into the driver’s seat. Museum staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the life of children in the 1860s.
