The Kentucky Historical Society’s HistoryMobile is available to visit elementary, middle and high schools in Kentucky.

This full-sized tractor trailer contains an interactive exhibition called “Torn Within and Threatened Without: Kentuckians in the Civil War Era,” which uses personal recollections, authentic artifacts and touch-screen activities to teach critical thinking, literacy and college and career readiness.

Student activities are tied to Kentucky Core Academic Standards for English and Language Arts and emphasize critical thinking, research skills, creativity and literacy.

To schedule a visit from the HistoryMobile or to find out more information, contact Kate Sowada at (502) 564-1792, ext. 4458 or visit the historical society’s website here.
