The final day of the Lew Wallace Youth Academy was filled with the sounds and sights of war! Students spent the morning with Mid-States Living History Association, Inc. at stations portraying a period telegraph, medical care, embalmer, cooking, and finally an interview with the General himself. The day ended with a family filled graduation ceremony where we retired an Indiana flag.
Students trained with the signal corps to send messages across camp.
New this year was a visit to the embalmer.
Several students prepare to assist the surgeon in “amputating” their classmate’s leg. They seem VERY pleased to be helping with this task…
