Civil War Letters
Civil War Letters – The 2012 New Jersey Teacher of the Year Jeanne M. DelColle works with her students on an after school project to transcribe civil war letters. Students at Burlington County Institute of Technology work with the Burlington County Historical Society on this history project. Some of the letters are from a local 17-year-old Civil War soldier, David Hankins, and his cousins who were serving with him. The students also make some of the letters into iMovie documentaries to help people understand the story behind the letters.
