What we learned from our field trip to Minuteman National Park:
1. Muskets aren't really that loud. As it turns out, there really isn't any need to plug your ears and shy away in absolute cringing terror.
2. The monents at the Old North Bridge are haunted, and gunshots and women's screams can be heard if you press your ears to them (this was the considered opinion of the class).
3. It is helpful to have someone along who has the slightet idea of how to navigate by road from the school to the field trip sight and, hopefully, back. In our case that person was me. Good thing I had the confidence to handle the awesome responsibility!
