The First Annual History Comes Alive Day provided over 700 regional students, including all SCA 5th and 6th graders, the opportunity to interact with Civil War reenactors and other volunteers who donned costumes and relayed stories about life in Central Pennsylvania during the 1860's. Based in the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds, the event consisted of interactive walking tours that brought students to a variety of learning stations including infantry, cavalry, and artillery demonstrations, medical care on the battlefield, tours of the Rupert Schoolhouse and Barton House, and lessons and demonstrations on butter making, blacksmithing, broom making, spinning and weaving. The event was organized and manned by volunteers of the Barton Historic Association and Fishing Creek Herb Guild, many of whom are retired educators and/or individuals who seek to share and instill a love and appreciation of history with today's students.
