Help me remember the name of this book from my youth. I don't remember much about it but it was the story of a group of school kids who go on a field trip to a fort. I think something happens at the fort, like they are transported back in time and experience life in colonial (civil war maybe) time. They may have even taken part in resisting a siege. I know that isn't much to go on, but I'd love to find it and re-read it :)
Here are my responses to the Guide for this type of question:
When did you read the story, and how old was it?
I read the story when I was a kid, so I'd say at least 20 years ago, and I have no idea if it was an old book already at that time.
Medium and appearance
I do not remember what the cover looked like, but I remember it was a book, and not a magazine or a story from a textbook or anything like that. My feeling was that it was a typical length for a YA book, probably no more that 200 pages.
What language did you read it in, and was it translated?
English, and I doubt if it was translated but you never know!
Where did you read this story?
It is very likely that I read this story either in the public library, or I checked it out from the library. I did a lot of "summer reading" events when I was a kid and I took crap-tons of books out of the library in those days.
