We are looking at compiling a list of stories to read to elementary (grades 1-8) students on the topic of nonresistance; stories that could be used as devotionals or story time readings. Our students know the stories of Dirk Willems and Preacher Peter and the “older” stories but we are looking for good stories that tell the tales from the Civil War era until today–stories that hit a little closer home. Some of us grew up with personal stories of the CPS and 1-W days from our parents and grandparents. Today’s students do not have that close of contact with people who lived those stories because for many of them not even their grandfathers would have been drafted. What are some of your favorite stories from this era and where can they be found?
