Essential Question: "How does the experience of visiting a historic battleground connect a student or citizen with the soldiers who fought and died on that battleground for a cause greater than themselves?"
Our group plans to travel to Gettysburg mid-week and explore the historical battlefield to discover a sense and knowledge about the men who fought. Researching will include the Concord Historical Museum and film during the week. By stepping into the shoes of Union and Confederate commanders, we will each find a different historical perspective of the battle and create an exhibition of the knowledge and ideas that we will learn.
This is our chance to interact with history and engage in the lives of significant leaders, bringing them into our own context. We are all looking forward to exploring together and are excited to discover the past of Gettysburg!
