North Clay Middle School eighth-graders took a trip back in time Thursday.
Members of the 14th Indiana Civil War Reenactment Unit -- based in Rockville -- visited the students to explain how soldiers lived during the Civil War.
As the students were transported back to the year 1862, guides at four different stations provided details into the past.
"I usually give talks to most of the Northview High School history students," guide leader and Cumberland Academy teacher Don Bryan said. "Some of the other guys have talked at North Clay."
Bryan was joined by his son, NHS junior James Bryan, NHS senior Will Barnett, Rockville resident Eric Wilson and Brazil resident Brandon Rollins Thursday.
The kids were given approximately 10 minutes at each station. The reenactors set up stations for weaponry, tactics in infantry, general flags and communication and the daily life of a soldier.
"The kids usually have a pretty good response," Bryan said.
Five total classes had the opportunity to examine weapons, flags and various other items.
Bryan, along with the 44 remaining people involved in the 14th reenactment unit, have participated in reenactments in 15 states. The youngest member is 13 while the oldest is 62.
