A teacher that I work with mentioned that she had a helmet for me. She said she heard about my "hands on history" lesson, and she'd be proud to give me her great grandfather's helmet. She just sent these pictures and I'll be able to pick it up tomorrow. What do you fine ladies and gentlemen think?
She also said that she has an American Civil War musket that she'd be willing to sell... She sent me pics of that too, but it looks like it's missing pieces, and to be honest, it really doesn't interest me.
