Voices of the American Civil War Stories of Men, Women and Children Who Lived Through the War Between the States by Kendall Haven

Immerse your students in these 27 gripping accounts of men, women, and children-from the North and the South-who lived, fought, and survived the Civil War. Following the same format as Voices of the American Revolution, nationally acclaimed author and storyteller Kendall Haven takes you on a journey through the Civil War, giving students a well-rounded understanding of this four-year upheaval. All characters in the book are real, and the stories are historically accurate. Followed by a variety of learning extensions-objective questions, research projects, hands-on learning activities, and open-ended points to ponder for discussion-all stories complement the history curriculum and support National History Standards.


?Each selection is preceded by an overview of story-specific events and a short biographical sketch of the actual person. Follow-up questions and activities are excellent.?-School Library Journal
