Bullets used in the Civil War
This was used to cool hands & foreheads.
Sweet Pea samples some cornbread.
The different flags used in the war.
We learned about the history of each of these flags. For instance they only used this one a short time. The reason being when it was twisted in the wind it looked like a surrender flag. They didn't like that of course so they changed their flag design.
Love their sign!
On to World Wars I & II
He was very interested in finding out all about them.
Elvis asked lots of questions. The man was very kind to him.
Then it was Bugsy's turn. He has been very concerned about tornadoes ever since our city was hit by one in April. He asked the man if he would shoot the tornado for him with his gun. The man was so kind. He agreed to do that for Bugsy & listened to all he had to say. Bugs had the biggest grin on his face.
Trying to solve the puzzle.
Princess being pushed by big brother.
Representing The French & Indian War

Dave enjoyed a nice, long talk with this gentleman.
He showed us how he made an arrowhead.
This was super smooth & though you can't see it in the photo had gorgeous colors.
I was so busy talking to the Revolutionary solider that I forgot to take his photo. He was chock full of facinating information!
I think we spent 20-30 minutes talking to & learning from them.
