Event description

Description

What was life like for kids during the Civil War era? You will meet Salome "Sallie" Myers, who was a school teacher in Gettysburg, in the 1860's. Miss Myers will take you back to that time where you will experience a typical day. The presentation will cover morning chores, walking to the one room schoolhouse, learning time period lessons on slates, recess with time period toys and games, evening chores, homework, helping with supper, and finally family time by the fire. All of this is covered by using time period items, toys, lessons, and stories. Ever wonder where the saying "Hit the Hay" came from? Come and find out!

Presented by Lori Francesconi
