All kidding aside, we have been learning a lot about the U.S. Civil War.  Today we made hard tack, which was a common type of “bread” that the soldiers would eat.  We found out they were called “teeth dullers” for a good reason.  They didn’t taste bad (just bland), but I can’t imagine how hard they got when they were old and stale!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all that you do!

  1. Some of the hard-tack left over from the Civil War was issued to the soldiers during the Spanish American War in 1898!!!!!!!

  2. What a great field trip! So thankful for these officers who help keep us safe!
