UVA history for kids

Found a nifty little page over at Mr. Jefferson’s University’s website that has a history of the University for kids. Some of the hilights include Edgar Allen Poe, freshman; General Custer’s march on the Rotunda and subsequent 96 hour occupation; and the rescue of the big Jefferson statue by students in the fire of 1895!

Check it out here.
