The U.S. Civil War’s historical data like generals, battles, and dates are important to the framework of the war, but those points in history are only part of the story.

By showing students perspectives of American Indians who fought in the war, women who participated through both fighting and spying, and the use of photography to chronicle the war, they will gain new insights of how the war impacted those both on and off the battlefield. You’ll review resources that support teaching about the abolitionist movement and the removal of monuments across the country, along with a variety of curriculum ideas to enhance your instruction focused on the U.S. Civil War as a whole. This course will deepen your students’ understanding of the effects of war on our society, our people, and our nation.
