I stressed the importance of this subject, and encouraged them to go to the Atlanta History Museum for a more extensive lesson, since they live in the heart of the history of the Civil War! I believe that their viewing of “The Battle of Hampton Roads” really got their attention. Sidney grew up in Newport News and was visiting her mother here. I told Sidney that if today’s experience didn’t plant seeds of history in the minds of her sons, I didn’t know what would.
