- A Traveling History Trunk may be rented for $25 (2 week rental with a
$100 refundable deposit). This trunk of history is designed to be a mobile,
hands-on learning experience for classrooms which do not have the
opportunity to visit Bennett Place firsthand or as a post-visit
reinforcement activity. Teachers and students will find a variety of 19th
century daily items including Civil War soldier equipment, civilian
clothing, toys, letters, and, as well as a teacher's manual with a number of
suggested activities to be used by classes while they have the trunk. The
themes of the trunk are life of the common Civil War soldier along with
rural farm life in North Carolina during the Civil War era. Please contact
the Bennett Place staff to reserve the History Trunk.
- Have students take the Post-Visit Quiz to assess their comprehension of the information shared at the site.
