Re: RECOGNITION FOR THE CINCINNATI BLACK BRIGADE

Hello Bennie:

Thanks so much for sharing the Civil War history in Cincinnati with us.

I clicked on the headline:

WASHINGTON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Washington Courthouse, Ohio

Research History Class
Mr. Paul LaRue, Instructor

Class Members Testify Before Ohio House State Government Committee in Support of Resolution Giving Recognition to the Cincinnati Black Brigade (Civil War)

It is a testimony to you and Mr. LaRue for your hard work and leadership in inspiring a group of high school students to study African-Americans in the Civil War. What a wonderful experience for the students to testify before the Ohio State Government Committee! The students' knowledge would probably put many adults... who can only name Denzel in the watcha-ma-call-it regiment ...to shame.

I just wish that more teachers would use a "hands on approach" in teaching the Civil War and African-American contributions. Thank you for a look at our history as it is being told.

Bless you, the students and Mr. LaRue.
