Children will gain insight into the history of Valentine’s Day, Valentine keepsakes, and how soldiers celebrated the holiday during the Civil War. In the early 1800s most Valentine cards and keepsakes were handmade, and had become the most popular way to express feelings of love. During the Civil War, they combined sentiments of patriotism, love, duty, and loss. The keepsakes appealed to the soldiers who were far away from their loved ones, and were cherished when received in camp.
Each child will construct their very own unique Civil War valentine that they will be able to share with someone special.
