   At Carnation Elementary last week, members of the Washington Civil War Association demonstrate how a Civil War era cannon works. The association is a non-profit organization of professionals who are dedicated to the study and re-enactment of the Civil War. The students in the Program for the Academically Talented 3rd-5th grade class came dressed in 1860s attire. The Carnation PTSA and Carnation ASB sponsored the event for the students.
