Sojourn to the Past provides students the unique opportunity for them to delve into an important part of America's history, which the k-12 curriculum either does not cover or is limited in scope; thus, the Sojourn living history lesson ensures that the struggles of the past, which contributed to the freedoms we all enjoy today, are remembered.
