On Tuesday, 15 October 2019 Gregg Ballman, Dan Schmitz, and Mark Holland made 3 half-hour presentations each to students at the Royalmont Academy in Kings Mills. Gregg made a detailed presentation on the Declaration of Independence. Dan talked about the 10 Crucial Days at the Battles of Trenton, Assunpunk Creek and Princeton. Mark brought many items of 18th century living to give the students a feeling of what it might have been like to live at that time.
There was one group of seven 7th graders and two groups totaling 11 juniors and seniors . History teacher Christine Gladding explained that the students had just recently completed studies of the American Revolution and that our timing couldn’t have been better.
The students were all very attentive and asked pertinent questions. It was a great pleasure to interact with these students.
