This program will take children on an interactive musical adventure beneath the Earth’s surface! Through instrument exploration (drums, assorted percussion instruments), puppet-play, and storytelling children will learn about the wild and wacky creatures living beneath the surface of Africa and Australia. FUN, interactive rhythms will introduce animals such as meerkats, aardvarks, and gerboas… and children will discover the creature that lives further underground than ANY other (the devil worm, a native of Africa)!
The Safari continues… UNDERGROUND!!!

Military historian Terry Beckenbaugh examines the failed 1863 attack on the Confederacy’s Fort Wagner on Charleston Harbor – an incident that provided further evidence to both the North and South that African-American troops were ready to fight and die for the Union cause.

Beckenbaugh is an assistant professor in the Department of Military History at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.

Co-sponsored by the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College Foundation.
