Spoils of War–Field Trip

We got a jump start on our World War I & World War II unit studies by visiting a local war museum.   Trying to get Olivia to leave was like pulling teeth.  She was reading every single document, comparing uniforms and sympathizing with the wounded.   Her love for history is pretty intense.

We started off with the Revolutionary War.

The Civil War display was almost my undoing.   The number of factoids this kid spits out at me causes my brain to cramp.
