Wausau West students tour Civil War exhibit

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Wausau West ninth graders got a history lesson with a local flavor on Friday.

About 325 students toured the Marathon County Historical Society.

They took notes on the museum's Civil War exhibit. The display shows how the war affected Marathon County.

"Coming here, we can find out there were people in Wausau at that time, although we were a young community, a lot of men volunteered from our community," said Christine Kadonsky a U.S. history teacher at Wausau West High School.

She says students will begin their Civil War unit after spring break.
