Talcott Mountain Academy students Devon Beirut, Kana Chavez, Randy Cohen, Abigail Marmer-Adams, Randy Cohen, Drake Muth and Max Nobel, with their teacher Miss Petit performed a Civil War Reenactment. The students each took on the persona of someone from the Civil War and presented that person to the rest of the school. Students chose a variety of personas from the Governor of Connecticut, to surgeons, soldiers and female spies. Each student brought in their own uniform and accessories in order to bring their person from the pages of a history book into the world of the 21st century. The students answered various questions from “what is your job,” to “Why did you decide to fight for the North/South?” Students researched their persona thoroughly and were able to give in-depth monologues and answers to questions from the students and teachers at Talcott Mountain Academy. The Civil War Reenactment served as a wonderful learning experience for all involved.
