Two interactive stations challenge visitors to pack for battle or learn bugle calls in game-like experiences that illuminate a day in the life of a Civil War soldier.

Two challenges in one interactive, these activities engage younger audiences in a series of first-person decision-making exercises that bring to life the communication and preparation considerations a soldier faced. The Bugle Calls activity gives visitors an overview of several important calls every soldier was required to know, then tests their retention and musical discernment capabilities as they are asked to identify different calls. In the On Campaign activity visitors learn about all the gear a soldier might use throughout a campaign, and then challenges them to efficiently pack their sack for conflict and see how their decisions affect their ability to endure long marches and stand ready for battle.
