SHERMAN, TX - Students in Sherman are learning about history in a different way this week, as they celebrate Western Days, with some of the students at Dillingham Intermediate sporting cowboy hats as the school celebrates the history and heritage of America.

Members of the Sons of the Confederacy volunteered to demonstrate the ways of the old days. Kids learned about eras that cover the War of 1812 all the way to through the Civil War. Teachers say while it is fun to get away from the usual curriculum, students also learn a lot about history.

Western Days run through Friday at Dillingham.

    I'm a HUGE fan of Jesus, but if the past is thrown out & ignored we will be doomed to repeat it. And the kids deserve to be informed of the past. If that line of thinking were to continue, then things begin to get warped...like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claiming that the Holocaust was all faked & never happened. Thank you KXII for offering coverage of this, and thank you Dillingham for allowing this presentation!

    Nice J. Chick. Just replace every thought in your head with "jesus" and then go around all day long squaking Jesus at everything and everybody. Thats what jesus wouldv'e wanted. P.S. I know you're not very smart and probably missed the sarcasm here so i'm gonna let you in on it. I was being sarcastic.

    More Jesus, less Jefferson! I could do without that Lincoln fellow too.
