Children's Crisis Treatment Center

Today I visited members of Philadelphia's Children's Crisis Treatment Center and watched a presentation on what life was like as a Union soldier. I learned lots of cool facts. Did you know that soldiers would use their bayonets as candle holders and as tent pegs? Also soldiers ate a type of bread called hardtack. It was almost as hard as a rock and sometimes had bugs living in it!
