The civil war came to life at D.C. Everest. Students took an active roll in learning about the conflict. Teachers are teaming up with civil war reenactors and the Marathon County Historical Society to give a hands on experience.

The main focus is to engage the kids by reliving certain aspects of the Civil War. Kids will learn a variety of things at certain stations. Some stations told about the everyday lives of soldiers in Central Wisconsin.

Others taught kids Civil War medicine, and even what it was like to fire a Civil War cannon. Organizers hope that by re-enacting the Civil War, kids will understand the role Wisconsin played in the conflict.
