Military History Club suggestions info
However, the only real activities we do include playing Axis and Allies and maybe a field trip to the USS Kidd. I'd love to be more helpful, answer questions on equipment or just about any other subject, but theory generally being considered obscure and equipment, jargon, history, etc etc not really coming up, I was wondering if anyone might have any other suggestions that I can submit to the teacher heading the program.

do a staff ride.... have them study a piece of military history from the area, then go out and walk the history in the same location it took place.
We did one here of Chanslorsville and it was awesome.

Wasn't there a great battle down there during the revolutionary war? The one where they had to preserve the British General by pickling the guy in a barrel or something. Apparently the war was already over by then but they didn't know that. If only they had the telephone.

redneck, that would probably be the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. Port Hudson was a siege that resulted in a massive body count on the Mississippi River.
I like the idea of having people research a topic that interests them and giving a presentation at the next meeting, would get the girls in the club interested in military history and give us something to do other than play "Axis and Allies".
