Children will gain insight into the different ways soldiers and their families celebrated the holiday in camp, and on the home front. During the Civil War Christmas trees were small and were placed on top of tables. They were decorated with home-made ornaments, edible treats, like popcorn strings and peanuts wrapped in paper, and items found in nature, such as pinecones. Each child will construct a Victorian Christmas ornament to take home.
If your child is interested in attending the Civil War Christmas program, please register by contacting the park visitor center at 731-689-5696. The program is free and open to kids of all ages.
