Hands on History

On Friday, our fifth grade students were treated to a special event. Hands on History, run by Dennis Cormier, Commander of the 7th Mass Regiment,  provided students with a visual and hands-on experience of what it is like being a Continental Army soldier during the American Revolution.   He brought over $40,000 worth of original 18th century artifacts and reproductions to Nissitissit to share with students.  Our students listened to Mr. Cormier’s tales of what it was like being in the Continental Army. They loved trying on uniforms from the British, French, and Continental Armies as well as touching many items from that time period such as pewter lanterns, pitchers, muskets, and coins.  Students were able to see documents with the stamps required of that time (Stamp Act) and an actual newspaper with George Washington’s obituary! Pepperell resident and parent, Mr. Carroll also joined the presentation dressed in uniform. Thanks to the Pepperell Cultural Council and The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts for providing most of the funding for this assembly. Our students learned so much and enjoyed it!
