Another fabulous Living History Day put together by the Mercer Media Center, and the History and FACS Departments! Many first-hand accounts that connected the veterans (including fathers of current Mercer teachers) and organizations to the students. Additionally, many simulations gave the students experiences of breaking code, propaganda, D-Day artifacts and military boot camp, just to name a few. The special guests were so impressed by the behavior of the Mercer students along with the depth of their questions!😀
