On Thursday, May 14th the Cumberland Plough Boys took part in a Civil War Field Day at Stedman Elementary School.  The children were given stations to visit where they would play games that were popular in the 1860s.  Also, there was a chance for them to visit a Campsite where they could find out about how the soldiers lived ate, and dressed.  The most popular items were the leg irons and shackles carried by the Provost, and items that were much different back in those times such as the three pronged fork or suspenders.  The presentation was led by Commander Ken Bell and Quartermaster Dwight Lovick.  Also in attendance was 1st Lt. Commander Mark Whitley.   The credit for organizing the event goes to Ploughboy Matt Hall.
