Compatriot Ken Gilkey, talks to sixth graders at
John H. Castle Elem School about Rev. War Soldiers daily life.
At right is SAR Ladies Auxiliary Member Peggy Gilkey in colonial attire.

Ken & Peggy prepare hardtack bags to show students.

I was not getting 100 per cent attention from everyone!!

Students gave 100 per cent attention when shown
a soldier's daily ration. One cup of dried beans and 1 lb. of hardtack.
