The Civil War Revisited – Again!

The students and teachers of Chalone Peaks Middle School created a great Civil War reenactment last May. Deep learning about our shared history, superb teamwork and great fun defined the day. It was the 18th time Bull Run, Gettysburg and the Civil War camps of both armies were brought to life by all the participants. As usual, I learned from both the students and the history. I would have shared Dave Park’s wonderful photos of our 18th annual event sooner, but I missed the link back in May. Better late than never! Enjoy!

Ambush!

Gettysburg Remembered

Son Jeremy and I walked over the battlefield at Gettysburg on a mild June evening in 2009.  I recorded my thoughts in a journal and would like to share them on the 150th anniversary of the battle.  Beryl Belsky, editor of The Writer’s Drawer, has published my remarks.  The link is below.
