Four men whose ancestors fought in the 1860s war paid a visit to history teacher's Sharon Akridge's classroom last week.
The men, Bobby Morris, Bill Seymour, Richard Montgomery and John Potenza, were dressed in Confederate uniforms. They are members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 1202, Capt. Sherod Hunter's Arizona Rangers.
The group talked about the war in general, about their ancestral ties to the war and how Hunter's soldiers flew the Confederate flag over Tucson in February 1862.
