Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

History explodes in this activity guide spanning the turmoil preceding secession, the first shots fired at Fort Sumter, the fierce battles on land and sea, and finally the Confederate surrender at Appomattox. Making butternut dye for a Rebel uniform, learning drills and signals with flags, decoding wigwag, baking hardtack, reenacting battles, and making a medicine kit bring this pivotal period in our nations history to life. Fascinating sidebars tell of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad, the adventures of nine-year-old drummer boy Johnny Clem, animal mascots who traveled with the troops, and friendships between enemies. The resource section includes short biographies of important figures from both sides of the war, listings of Civil War sites across the country, pertinent websites, glossary, and an index.

Synopsis:

Learn about about the Civil War, from the secession debates to Appomattox, through such activities as making butternut dye, decoding wigwag, and baking hardtack. Suggested Web sites and Glossary included. 50 photos.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index.
