Step 1 of 4

  • School of the Soldier Information

    Dear Parent/Guardian:
    We are excited to have your child join us for School of the Soldier at the Carroll County Farm Museum this spring! One of our goals is to enable children to come learn what it was like to be a soldier in the Civil War. Participants will be mustered in, drill and then reenact a skirmish for their families and other Museum guests.



    The receipt of the registration form and payment of $25 is confirmation of enrollment.
    1. Once you have sent in your payment, there will be no refund given five days after we receive payment.
    2. In this packet are forms that are required for each child. Please fill out each form and return the entire packet to the Farm Museum as soon as possible but no later than April 14, 2017. The packet can be dropped off or mailed to the Carroll County Farm Museum at 500 South Center St., Westminster MD 21157, Attention: School of the Soldier.
    CLOTHING: We encourage the children to wear period clothing if they wish. They may also wear clothing that is weather appropriate. We do require closed-toed shoes.
