Natchez, Mississippi: Next Stop for Our Savior Lutheran Third Graders

We put on our sailor caps and headed down the Mississippi River.  We stopped in Natchez, MS and saw a beautiful mansion that was built on a cotton plantation.

We learned about slavery and how the slaves worked on the plantations.  We learned that President Lincoln freed the slaves and that the North and South fought a war about slavery.

When we got back to the classroom we worked on our scrapbooks   .
