Civil War History Becomes "Real" for Pennsylvania High School Students

From the March 1, 2014, Philadelphia Inquirer by Edward Colimore. //// The Historical Society of Moorestown brought their exhibit "Moorestown During the Civil War" to school. //// The students got to "meet" Joseph Hugg, a Navy surgeon on the USS Hartford, Admiral Farragut's flagship and William Gold, a sailor on the USS Cumberland, which was sunk by the Confederate ironclad CSS Virginia. //// They also met George Wiltshire, a farmer who joined the Army at age 19, was wounded twice and held prisoner at Belle Island in Richmond. --Old B-Runner
