Mrs. Ricks' and Ms. Young's classes took their learning on the road to Old Fort Niagara! A fun, educational experience was had by all. The students participated in the program, "Flintlocks and Council Fires". The biggest hit of the trip was watching the musket demonstration and cannon firing. The classes even received compliments on how well behaved the students were!
"Flintlocks and Council Fires is a living history program that traces the history of Fort Niagara and its people over a 75-year period; from the days of the French construction of the Fort through the devastating War of 1812. Along the way, your students will meet French, British and American soldiers, Native American diplomats and civilian artisans."
