6th Graders Enjoy Local History Field Trip to Fort Griswold State Park

Mr. Emanuel's 6th grade Local History class visited Fort Griswold State Park after having studied the Battle of Groton Heights in class. 
The students had read and compared four primary accounts (two colonial, two British) of that Revolutionary War battle, which occurred on September 6, 1781, so they were well aware that they were treading on sacred ground where men had fought and sacrificed for their freedom. After touring the fort, students had an opportunity to view displays and artifacts in the adjacent museum.
