A Soldier's Life: Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Game
Sun, June 16th, 2013 | 1:30 pm

After asking Harold Holzer all your Civil War questions, come play this interactive game where you become a soldier in the Civil War! Led by a New-York Historical educator, you will make choices about what you would do in realistic Civil War situations. At the end of the game, you'll find out whether you would have lived or died, come home happy or with "Soldier's Heart." In the process, you may just eat hard tack, handle a minie ball, and beat some drums! Prizes for participation!
