This past week, all fifth grade students at MVES had the opportunity to attend the 27th Reenactment of the Civil War Battle of Camp Wildcat.  This field trip allowed students the chance to see and learn about a very important time period in our country’s history.  Students saw up close the lifestyle of an average solider, common weapons, song and leisure activities, and cooking demonstrations.  The reenactment between the Union and Confederate soldiers demonstrated basic tactics and maneuvering techniques.
