Civil War comes to Parrett Mountain!

Young People gathered around two Civil War reenactors explaining their Cause.For the first time this year, History Camp included a face to face with active duty Union soldiers from the Civil War. Sherwood town founder J. C. Smock might not have been so sure about seeing blue coats this close to home. We know for certain that J. C.'s Uncle A. Z. Hall cheered for the rebel cause all through the war.

This video was made at Sherwood City Hall during History Camp. The students are presenting research they've doing on Sherwood history. They are also getting themselves ready for the day when they will enter a room such as this one and notice that there is no elder-- no teacher or youth councilor or parent-- up front calling the meeting to order. They will look at each other and realize: "It's OUR turn to run the world!!"

So I guess in Oregon the Artillery was the "2nd." They were stationed in Astoria. I don't know why one unit of the 64th Calvary was here. I guess we will never know...
Perhaps they were here for an Indian War.

Those kids were going to go down and take pictures every week of the culvert project. I sure how they got some good ones. If so send them to the Historical Society.

To place the kids in a position of authority. That is pretty powerful stuff. Where do I sign up my kids for this?
