Part 1: Mabel-Canton senior class trip diaries

Day 1

By Erin Wood and Courtney Smith

We had to be at the school at 3:45 am in order to leave by 4:30. We got there and had to have our bags checked. Our parents brought us, so we got to say goodbye to them. We loaded the bus and left Mabel. Dave Zimmer was our tour guide and let us go back to sleep as soon as we got on the bus. I think most of us were too excited to go back to sleep.  Dave woke us up early that morning as we were nearing Chicago and started loading our heads with information. He had us up and dancing and re-enacting situations as far back as the Civil War. When we got to Chicago, we went to the Willis Tower and got to go out on the ledge to look over the whole city. Following the Willis Tower, Dave gave us a taste of the traveling we’d be doing in the next nine days as he led us through Millennium Park. After Millennium Park, we headed out to Ohio to spend our first night together as a family. We went swimming and ate. The next day we were up at the crack of dawn to further our adventure.

Day 2

By Danielle Paul and Kayla Phillips

This morning we woke up in Ohio around 4 am. Departure was 4:30 am so we could make it to Gettysburg by 1:30 pm. Today in 1865 was the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. When first arriving, we went to a visitor center. While there we saw a movie on Abraham Lincoln, and then we went upstairs and saw a 380 foot long, 42 foot high Cyclorama painting. The painting looked so real you couldn’t tell what was a painting and what was actual land. In the painting the artist painted in Abe Lincoln’s face and also painted himself in. After the visitor center, we went out onto the battlefield. While out on the battlefield, we re-enacted how to fire a cannon. Just like every year the girls’ team won.

Once we were done on the battlefield, we went across the way to the cemetery on Cemetery Ridge. While there we listened to Erin give the Gettysburg Address. That night it was time to go out onto the battlefield in the dark to see the ghosts. While out on the battlefield, we got to go up in the Pennsylvania Monument to look out onto the battlefield and see what it looked like at night. After hearing ghost stories, it was time to slowly head back to the hotel for the night. Everyone took their own pace to absorb everything they wanted to and to try and feel what it was like back during the war. To many people this was one of the bigg .....
