History Club visits 18th and Vine by rosalia salazar

After months of preparation, History Club's field trip of the the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum finally took place.

Students arrived at North on March 22nd at 6:30am and their charter bus departed from North at 7am. While on the bus the students were able to watch 42, Jackie Robinson's biopic. Once the group arrived to Kansas City they made a stop to eat lunch.

The group ate lunch at Arthur Bryant's Barbecue, a famous BBQ restaurant. The restaurant has been visited by many famous celebrities and even former Presidents.

Some of the politicians that have visited Arthur Bryant's include former presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin and the late US Senator John McCain. "We were originally going to stop for lunch at another location but eventually chose to stop at Bryant's because it is a historic KC restaurant," club sponsor Ms. Smith said.

After eating lunch, the group had about an hour and a half before they had to arrive at the Baseball Meuseum. They all pilled up onto the bus and drove to the World War 1 Museum. They were able to walk around and enjoy the view of downtown Kansas City for about an hour.
