Have you ever wanted to try on crinoline, taste hardtack, or fire a cannon?  Ostrander Branch Library’s Book Bunch kids got to do just that.  American Civil War history was the topic for the day.  Learning to sit properly in a hoop skirt, and the roles of a gun (cannon) crew were challenging and fun.  The general consensus was that hardtack tasted like a cross between bread and playdough.  Everyone seemed glad that we don’t have it as a staple in this day and age!  All in all, we had a blast! (Pun intended.)
