North Carolina Civil War & Reconstruction History Center

Fayetteville, NC

Sited on the preserved, historic ruins of a pivotal Civil War landmark, the North Carolina Civil War & Reconstruction History Center (NCCWRHC) intends to expand the typical view of the American Civil War to include the stories of all North Carolinians, including Native American tribes, Quaker pacifists, women, and children. The story focuses on the home front as much as the battlefield. In order to provide a truly engaging and educational experience for children, school groups, and families, EAI worked with Turnkey Education to develop and facilitate focus group sessions with local fourth and eighth grade students and teachers, to benchmark kids’ current level of understanding of the Civil War and the concepts surrounding it.
