Virtual Field Trip on the War of 1812

I am happy to share with you a story from the Monroe Evening News about a series of virtual field trips conducted by the Monroe County ISD and the Monroe County Historical Museum over the past 3 weeks on the Battle of Frenchtown. (also see http://www.riverraisinbattlefield.org/)

The amount of work that went into the planning and preparation was incredible. I personally did nothing more than run the teleprompter for several sessions, but in addition to some hard-working folks at the historical museum and ISD there were several re-enactors, and history teachers involved since last summer.

After what seemed like 100 sessions over 3 weeks, close to 2000 students from Monroe County schools participated.
