We have two great classes planned: War of 1812 and the Trail of Tears. Descriptions follow: WAR OF 1812 -In honor of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, this interactive program invites students to learn why the war was fought, and the legacy of the War of 1812. Also includes a strategy activity, asking students to think about how the Battle of New Orleans was fought. TRAIL OF TEARS -Examining one of the darkest chapters in the United States' history, the Trail of Tears program takes students back to the foundation of our country to see how the citizens - and our government - interacted with Native Americans. From the purchase of Manhattan by the Dutch through the Indian Removal Act to the forced Cherokee removal in the Trail of Tears, students will learn not only how removal happened, but why. Students will also take home an Indian Blanket flower to plant. "The topic was high level, but you really did a superb job of making it kid friendly!" - Mrs. Boylan, 5th grade teacher. After the classes are complete, your field trip admission gives you full privileges of regular admission to the Hermitage. Thus, you may go see the film, explore the grounds, and take a guided tour of the Mansion. The mansion tours are going on continually.
