Elemntary students labeled as slaves for an authentic reenactment? Sure I agree that history needs to be taught warts and all but this was just plain stupid. No child at that age is in need of a "reenactor" attempting to educate them on an issue that should be left for the classrooms. I guess I should just hand out my Howard Zinn books to my son's daycare then. These kids will have plenty of time to learn of America's ugliness when they get older and are more albe to put it into historical perspective. Just let them have fun at the encampment.
