** CERTIFICATION **
The Arkansas Living History Association, a new group organized to help educators find quality programs for their students, has developed a certification process. Miss Ellie Presents... is the first program certified by ALHA, February 2009.
Miss Ellie goes back to school.
Announcing....one of two scholarship recipients!
Yes, we are never too old to learn something new. Miss Ellie has decided to increase her knowledge by pursuing a Master's Degree. Classes will be taken at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock campus (GO TROJANS!). If you have any sense of pity, please pray for her as she embarks on this new adventure. Somebody out there must have faith in her because she received the Freeman Tilden Scholarship from the National Association for Interpretation.
The latest news is a Civil War Wedding!
H.L. Hunley Funeral
is the only word to describe
the H.L. Hunley crew's funeral. On April 17, 2004 the eight members
of the Confederate submarine, H.L. Hunley were finally laid to a hero's
rest in the Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, SC. The remains
of the men were discovered while exploring the recently raised submarine
that had sunk after successfully destroying the warship, the Housatonic.
The Hunley is the first submarine to be used in warfare, laying the foundation
for the many years of submarine use to follow. These men can be compared
to the astronauts of today, volunteers for a cause for which they were
willing to sacrifice their lives, and did.
