History Comes Alive at Cross Middle School
Volunteer Barb Carter, dressed as Civil War spy master Elizabeth Van Lew, made history come alive during Mrs. Jennifer Jones’ REACH humanities class at Cross Middle School. Carter described Van Lew’s life in Richmond, Va. and how she recruited agents to build an extensive and successful spy ring to support the Union Army. Students were fascinated to learn how she developed a cipher system to code secret information and how she smuggled messages out in hollowed out eggs, apples, potatoes and even loaves of bread.
Carter, a former educator and active member of the SaddleBrooke Civil War and World War II discussion groups, hand makes all of her own period costumes and accessories. She will be returning to Mrs. Jones’ classroom to give a series of presentations in the spirit of other historical figures.
