Civil War Living History Day
May 2, 2014
Registration Deadline: Registration is closed.

What we're doing...
Join us on May 2 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm for the "Battle for Columbia" Living History Day in Sandy Run, SC (about 20 miles south of Columbia). Instructors, historians, and reenactors will provide many educational workshops and reenactments to bring Civil War history alive for our students. Educational stations include programs about infantry, artillery, 1860's cooking and ladies' fashions, soldier's uniforms, artifacts, music, field medicine, and more.

I've reserved a large block of space for our group, so please register by March 21 so I can verify our numbers and release unused space. (This is a members-only event, and includes families who've already registered for 2014-2015.)

(NOTE: No drop-offs. Parents, or another adult, must attend this event with their children.)

Cost and what's included...
The cost is $3 per student (kindergarten and up). Parents and younger children are free.

Lunch is not provided, so plan to bring a picnic lunch. There will be a food vendor onsite with a limited menu (hot dogs, corn dogs, etc.), beverages, and snacks, if you'd rather purchase your food there.

Cancellation policy and refunds...
To keep the cost of this field trip as low as I possibly can, there will be no refunds for cancellations or no-shows. Your signed registration form and payment acknowledges that you understand and agree with my cancellation and refund policy.

Want to go?
Registration is closed. Please consider another event.



Important Notes
This field trip is reserved for Carolina Homeschooler members (including families who've registered early for 2014-2015).



Full payment is due within 7 days of my registration confirmation email. Please don't register until you can make full payment.

I accept checks and BillPay through your bank. I can't accept PayPal or credit cards (credit card checks are fine).

Please make sure you select the correct event on the registration form. (I use the same form for multiple field trips.)

You (or another adult) must attend this program with your children. No drop-offs.

Lunch isn't provided. Plan to bring a picnic lunch, or buy lunch from a vendor available at the site. 

No refunds for cancellations or no shows.
