Homeschool Day 2013 will offer hands-on learning experiences for all ages. Join the Confederate Army and learn to drill, try dancing the Virginia Reel, enjoy 19th century games and crafts, watch the Emmy-award winning film, Field of Lost Shoes, take a guided tour through the battlefield, learn 19th century foodways and much more. Visit displays on wildlife at the Battlefield (keep an eye out for the Park’s resident bald eagles, wild turkeys, deer and other animals), protecting our waterways (don’t miss the spectacular views of the Shenandoah River from our overlooks) and others. Purchase a sandwich from Chick Fil-A (or bring your own!) and homebaked goodies from the food booth. Visit the General’s Store for a great selection of books and other items to further your educational goals as well as souvenirs of your visit.
