[ARCHIVED] The American Civil War & The Life of a Soldier

Arn Kind, teacher-historian-reenactor, will give us an idea of what the conflict was like for the typical soldier of this time. His presentation will include a "living history" experience that will allow participants to get a feel for what it was like to be a soldier in the ranks. He will also discuss the technologies that evolved during this time of great social and political upheaval. Innovations that did not just change the way people fought wars--they also changed the way people lived. This program was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
