Some of Greene’s Middle School students had the opportunity
to see history in action during their Social Studies class on Friday. Mr.
Savage, a Civil War reenactor, came dressed for the occasion in a brown
Confederate uniform. He also brought with him a Union uniform and several other
pieces. In addition, students were able to see various flags and learn about
the background of each. Mr. Savage has taken part in many different
reenactments in the last 30 years. He shared his knowledge of battles, flags,
and life as a soldier. Did you know that an average soldier carried about
45 pounds of gear?
Students had opportunities to ask questions and even try
some hardtack. It was a great time for both students and teachers!
