|Good question, izzy. And yes, this all came about from a couple of really simple questions I asked them: what do you like about the Civil War, and what do you want to know more about the Civil War? Most of the kids are at the, "I don't know--maybe the guns--the uniforms--I just like it" stage, which is not meant as a derrogatory thing. One of the kids mentioned Jeb Stuart, and that's where we started on the calvary topic, and many of the kids were interested, but not with any specific questions--just interested. It's sometimes tough to pull questions out of junior high school boys, even on topics they like!
