Park Fun

So you want to learn about the Civil War?

Can you imagine spending almost ten months of the Civil War fighting in one area? Why were the soldiers here for so long? How did they pass their days? What was it like living in the trenches around Petersburg?

Through Soldier Life and Pictionary examine the lives, the uniforms and the equipment of Civil War soldiers who traveled on foot, fought on horseback, or fired a cannon.
