Homeschool History Day: War on the Stono at Dill

Homeschool History Day: War on the Stono at Dill

Discover the Civil War history of James Island by visiting Battery Pringle located at the Charleston Museum’s Dill Sanctuary. Stand in the middle of the earthwork structure and hear the tale of the skirmish with a Union vessel attempting to infiltrate the Stono River. Learn how the battery was built, its daily operations, and imagine what it must have been like during the war. Students will learn about the construction of earthwork fortifications, the importance of James Island and the location of the Dill Sanctuary during the war, and the process of protecting what is left of the battery. Add any of our recommended classes to extend your time at the Dill Sanctuary and supplement tour information. Homeschool History Day programs feature a field trip experience, a chance to go through the Museum, and an educational activity. Recommended for ages 6 to 12.
