Mary has been taking a history class called "Time Travel into America's Past" with the homeschool Friday Enrichment group. We've gone on some field trips to nearby historical sites. This one is Bennett Place, a Civil War-era farm. The largest troop surrender of the Civil War was negotiated there, but our visit focused on farm life during the mid-1800s. The tour guide showed the kids the house, separate kitchen, smokehouse, and a film about what farm life was like for children.
