View the Civil War from a variety of unique perspectives. How did slaves react to the war? What hardships did soldiers on both sides face? What role did women play back home? In this unit you will also analyze war propaganda and explore primary source documents – letters written from real soldiers and relatives during the war. For the final project of this unit you will develop an argumentative essay.
This unit can be used independently, but it is also designed to be used concurrently with the social studies unit Slavery and the Civil War.
