Living History Virtual Class

We are living and making history right now!  We haven’t experience anything like this pandemic in our lifetimes but similar things have happened in the past.  In these challenging times, we can draw inspiration from the stories of Medal of Honor recipients and learn from history.  As education moves from in person classrooms to online platforms, the National Medal of Honor Heritage Center can support teachers and students by conducting virtual classes.

In our Living History Virtual Class, students will hear a short lecture and then have a chance to interview a Living Historian (or in the more recent wars, a Veteran) discussing the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and/or the War on Terror.  Our Living Historians will bring a different dynamic to your online classroom.  Living Historians represent the stories of men and women by wearing the clothing and equipment they would have worn in their era.  This Living History Virtual Class will be facilitated by our Director of Education, with support from the classroom teacher, so students learn the standards in a unique and engaging way.

Students who participate can earn a free ticket to the National Medal of Honor Heritage Center by answering and asking questions.  In order to participate, please fill out the form below or contact Hannah Sher, the Director of Education, at
