Barbara J. Feldman
Dear Barbara,

On Thursday morning, on my way home from dropping my daughter at school, a woman in a silver BMW X5 SUV backed into me at a street light where I was waiting behind her to make a right turn. She got out of her car, looked at the damage, and started talking about wanting to make a left turn. As I was rummaging through my purse for a pen, she walked back to her car and took off!

I stood in the street, shell shocked, and watched as her car sped away. I knew I was supposed to memorize her license plate number, but all I could get was “XXXX.”

More than 600,000 Americans gave their lives for their country in the Civil War (1861-1865), more than any other war in our history. Although the North prevailed over the South, the grief and bitterness caused by such violence healed very slowly. Learn more at these fine sites.

*****
Step back in time, and try to imagine yourself a soldier in the Civil War. Where do you sleep? How do you pass the time? What personal items did you bring from home? Camp Life reveals the daily life of both Union and Confederate soldiers with an online exhibition of common everyday items. Learn what a “housewife” is, and why infantrymen were only issued half a tent. By focusing on these simple, useful items, the Gettysburg National Military Park gives us unique insight into the life of a Civil War soldier.

Civil War for Kids

***
During the 1999-2000 school year, the students in Mrs. Huber’s class at Pocantico Hills School in Sleepy Hollow, New York studied the Civil War, and created a fabulous website summarizing everything they learned. The best clicks for elementary-age students are the illustrated Timeline, The Emancipation Proclamation, Uniforms, the Biographies of Civil War Leaders, and Children of the Civil War.

The Civil War Home Page
http://www.civil-war.net/
*****
This extensive collection of articles, 1100 photos, battle maps, battle reports, 1860 census records, and Civil War links is a great resource for high school reports. The most fascinating documents are the primary sources, such as letters and diaries from the battlefield, slave narratives from interviews done in the 1930’s, and transcribed battle reports. The most useful page, however, is probably the Timeline of Events Leading Up to The Civil War. “1619 – English settlers in Virginia purchase 20 Africans from a Dutch ship.”
