Atlanta History Center Field Trip

We had SO much fun on our field trip to the Atlanta History Center! It was incredibly cold (especially in the shade), but we hung in there and learned so much about what life was like in 1864. 🙂 Thank you so much to our two chaperones, Sarah and Remie, who braved the cold to help our class 🙂
