Revolutionary war adventure 2024: riley’s farm, oak glen.
Revolutionary War Adventure
Select dates through Jan. 31, 2024
Riley’s Farm, Colonial Chesterfield at Riley’s Farm, 12261 S. Oak Glen Road, Oak Glen, CA
From Riley's Farm :
" The struggle for independence is more than charts, trends, and abstract academic theories. It is the story of what Patrick Henry labeled 'wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty!'
"Re-live that great struggle with us and bring the American Revolution alive!
"A living history adventure tour is much more than a field trip, it’s a chance to experience a first-hand glimpse of America’s past. Riley’s Farm offers a diverse variety of tours ranging from the beginning of America’s revolution to the Gold Rush of 1848!
"History comes to life, whether you taking up arms to defend the freedom of the American Colonies, debating the the choice of succession on the brink of the Civil War, or prospecting for gold as a 49er, you, your family, students, and friends will be inspired by the sights and sounds of history in the re-making!"

Mississippi State installs SEC’s largest on-campus solar facility
Contact: Harriet Laird
STARKVILLE, Miss.—The largest on-campus solar facility in the Southeastern Conference is now “energizing” Mississippi State as part of a 30-year renewable energy efficiency project.
The 3,420 solar panel installation will produce about 2.4 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, creating 2,400 average Renewable Energy Credits, or RECs, and saving—when connected with LED and other retrofit projects—$885,000 per year—plus an additional savings of $265,000 via a one-time rebate incentive from Tennessee Valley Authority.
“We’re taking innovative action now to generate renewable, sustainable power right here on campus. This solar structure is a visible symbol of Mississippi State’s commitment to reach our clean energy goals,” said Saunders Ramsey, executive director of MSU’s Campus Services, of the four-acre field between R.L. Jones Circle and Blackjack Road. “It’s an exciting time and a mission that the entire campus community can champion.”
“Clean energy development and production is the primary method by which campus aims to realize it’s 30-year plan that began in 2012. Clean energy generation accounts for 45% of the total campus carbon reduction goal, with the second highest category—lighting and equipment retrofits—accounting for 20% of the goal. This combination will bring the university a huge increase in energy savings and make significant strides in the plan’s two most critical emission reduction areas,” Ramsey said.
Upgrades and solar modules together will help MSU benefit from a 7,548 metric ton annual carbon reduction and save a total of 10,784,865 kilowatt hours of energy per year.
University campuses across the U.S. are uniquely positioned to engage in solar energy projects for more reasons than just saving money.
Les Potts, MSU interim vice president for Finance and Administration and CFO, said as solar farms continue to develop, more Mississippi landowners and utilities will consider the use of solar power on their property.
“With our land-grant mission, we have always helped Mississippians make the most of their natural resources,” Potts said. “By building and managing a solar farm of our own, we will be better prepared to advise stakeholders taking on similar endeavors.”
Another possible outcome of the university’s solar-energy commitment is the creation of student learning opportunities. Pre-professional, hands-on learning in such areas as design, production and solar farm maintenance and management could boost graduates’ employment potential as they enter the job market.
Mississippi State University is taking care of what matters. Learn more at www.msstate.edu .

Palaces for ordinary people – that was what Stalin promised to the people when the construction of the Moscow Metro began between the World Wars. The communist dictator hadn’t promised too much.

No wonder that Moscow residents love their metro. I will guide you through the bustle of one of the busiest subways in the world and show you the most beautiful stations Moscow city has.

My compliments on the superb “American Revolution School Tour” that John Muir Middle School experienced on Wednesday. You, Sgt. Major Harmon, Master Villareal, Master Drazin, and Miss Shaddix all played your roles brilliantly. I’ve been teaching American History for over thirty years, and have visited Williamsburg, Jamestown, Plymouth, Sturbridge, Mystic Seaport and other “living history” sites as a tourist, so I feel qualified to give you an enthusiastic “thumbs up” on the quality and quantity of information that was entertainingly presented at each of the rotation sites. You certainly make effective use of the three-and-a-half hours! –Glen Burbank, California! Thank you for a wonderful field trip yesterday! Since I am New England born and bred, I wondered how you could live up to my Revolutionary War expectations. Well I must say you surpassed them! Thank you from the entire 5th grade class at the Academy of Academic Excellence! We had a great time! All of you did a bang up job and we plan on returning next year. Thanks again! –Donna Academy for Academic Excellence Our 8th graders had a superb field trip to your Revolutionary War session in December. I was truly impressed with the professionalism, dedication, authenticity and true-life experiences the students enjoyed. (I was a docent for Massachusetts historical sites, as well as for the Ventura County Historical Society.) –Judith Nelson Riverside, California It goes a long way when you show a child a book with information about the history of the world they live in. When you give that same child the opportunity to see it first hand, hear, and feel the sounds of the past now you have given that child a lesson that will last a life-time. God Bless You! –Paul Francis Oceanside, California I would just like to thank you immensely for the wonderful adventure you and your staff took my students on yesterday. They came to school today with a true love of the country and a renewed love of history. They read a story in class today called, “…If You Lived at the Time of the American Revolution” and as soon as the story was over, the talk about yesterday began. They loved every minute of their time there…Thank you once again for all of your hard work in bring this period of history to life for my students. Lisa Digrado Linda Vista Elementary Pasadena, California My class chaperones and I really enjoyed your reenactment of the Revolutionary War. All Day long I heard comments such as: “wow, this is fun,” “I’m learning something new,” “I never knew that,” “Now I understand…” Our trip was excellent and I know my students learned more than what I had been teaching from our textbook. Thank you for making history come alive for my students and me.” –Rhonda Arroyo Verde School “I was at the farm on Friday March 22nd with my daughter’s school. I’ve been a mom for 22½ years and have been doing field trips for over 17 years, and yours is by far the best one EVER!!! And it’s not just because our last name is Riley. Everyone was so nice, knowledgeable, polite, professional and in character most of the time. I seriously loved it and will be back with my husband and the rest of the family. Thanks for everything.” –Debi Riley Bellflower, California “My class just had its field trip today and it was fantastic! All of the kids thoroughly enjoyed it and really experienced the Colonial Life we have been studying. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. This was one social studies lesson that even my most fidgety pupils did not consider “boring” even for a moment! Well done!” — Carmella Danella Santa Ana, California “We are looking forward to visiting your farm again. It is our school’s favorite fieldtrip. After two years, we have students asking when we are going and signing up early!” – Shannon Cabanas, Cobalt Middle School Victorville, CA “To all the folks at Riley Farm–Thanks for all the great work you do! All the best,” –Walter Fay, Executive Producer “The Patriot” “We just attended with our Charter school, Gorman learning center. My 13 year old Stephen, and 7 year old Jessica really enjoyed the interactive/reinactment of the Revolutionary War. But to tell you the truth,I think I enjoyed it just as much. I only wish I could have brought the other sons, age 15..Mark, and 17…Luke. They would have loved it also. So, we will attend future engagements if possible. Thank you so much again. We had a WONDERFUL time!!!” –Diana Spink, Panorma City “A touch of Colonial America on the West Coast. The Rileys have done their research! The authenticity of food, clothing, sharing of colonial trades, shelter and surrounding environment is truly remarkable. Participating in a battle … was a definite highlight…”

Bryant Ranch Elementary School, Yorba Linda
“A visit to Colonial Chesterfield…is the perfect way to start our year. As we study the Revolutionary Period and pioneer days…I often see students’ faces light up as they recall adventures (“we shot at the British from behind that stone wall”) and other lessons learned “out at the farm.” You make history “come alive” …thanks!
Ted Campbell, 5th grade teacher
Pachappa School, Riverside
“Thank you for the most wonderful field trip I have ever hosted for children. Your knowledge of history, the authenticity of your facilities, the beauty of the surroundings, and the love of history that you shared with the students are very much appreciated. All 112 students and teachers from Discovery Elementary School thank you! We are already planning our next visit. We never thought it would be possible to take the children back in time, but you have done just that! What a priceless opportunity. Thank you again for the experience.” Mary Dougherty Fifth Grade Teacher, Discovery Elementary I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my visit to your farm yesterday with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop. It was a wonderful, peaceful day, as well as educational. Smelling the clean air, hearing the birds chirping, seeing the lovely countryside and feeling the warm sunshine was so relaxing. And watching your beautiful children playing in the tall grass was enchanting. I felt like a guest at your home rather than a visitor at a tourist location. And by the way, the apple pie was one of the best I’ve ever had! Thanks for the great day! Sincerely, Nancy San Fernando
