Today was the first time I've had class in forever. Sorry for missing it the other day to get my braces off Mr. Boyle. Besides the small interuption to pass out the carnations, it was a pretty good class. We got a lot done and took a lot of notes. To be honest I never knew the southern states split from the union. I guess it makes sense though because of the civil war and everything. I really didn't know much about the Civil War. Its starting to make more and more sense now.
