War of 1812 -- September 15, 2011

Today I went to Good Shepherd School in Pacifica and talked to grades 5-8 in three periods (5 and 7 were together) about the War of 1812. They are participating in a DAR essay contest on the subject. They asked good questions. One kid wanted to know why countries go to war. I told her that is a very important question. I made sure they all learned and understood the phrase status quo ante bellum. It should be a hit in the essays.

I took the photo on 05-October-2008.
