Civil War Education:
More Americans lost their lives in the Civil War than in any other conflict. How
did the United States arrive at a point at which the South succeeded and some families
were so fractured that brother fought brother?
Many of the documents students will look at reflect the lives of ordinary people,
those who would fill the ranks of the armies and those on the home front supporting
the war effort. Public support for a war comes more easily when those who have to
fight feel they are defending what is important in their own lives. Students will
learn about everyday life before the Civil War in the North and South to begin to
understand which differences were significant.
