Eighth-graders at Placerita Junior High School enjoyed the school’s annual tradition of a Civil War Day, said Cynthia Ross, one of the teacher-organizers.


“This has been a Placerita (Junior High School) tradition for a long time, and it’s something that brings the Civil War to life for the students,” she said.


“It brings the field trip to them,” she added. “I enjoyed this when I was a student and now enjoy experiencing it with my students.”


Actors portraying soldiers from both the North and South sides of the conflict described their views about the war for students.

Women from the North and South described how they helped the men during the war by making blankets, canning food and, ultimately, starting the American Red Cross.

The actors also told stories of women sneaking into the armies dressed as men.
