The history of the American Civil War came alive for students at the St. Marys Area Middle School on Friday through a daylong Civil War Encampment held by the school's Civil War Club, which is under the direction of Ms. Cherri Gigliotti.
The event featured 10 different stations, with each relating to different areas of the Civil War-era.
