PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The American Civil War Era can be an exciting way for students to learn about how important the things that were said during this time were because of the impact they had. However, this time period can be overwhelming for students because of how much there is to cover. In this product you are provided with pictures and clues for students to get a firmer grip of this fascinating time period because of what was said, who said it, why it was said, and the impact that it had within the story of the American Civil War.

Included in this package are 15 famous people from the American Civil War Era who said something that was powerful at the time and still resonates in our minds today. The phrases are to be found by students using whatever research methods you decide on.

The 15 Phrases are accompanied by two different writing tasks of your choice:

Option #1 is set up for students to identify what was being said in the bubble captions, explain what the phrase means, and explain what was happening during the Civil War Era that led to the phrase being said.

Option #2 is more advanced in terms of students choosing two of the phrases that have been discovered and identify key words, find synonyms that could have been used, identify what the words mean, and write a critical analysis as to whether or not they believe the phrase is a valid and meaningful part of American History.

The Phrases Included are:

Abraham Lincoln - "A house divided against itself cannot stand."

Harriet Tubman - "I never ran my train off the tracks, and I never lost a passenger."

Frederick Douglass - "What to the American slave is your Fourth of July?"

John Brown - "...what we need is action!"

Abraham Lincoln - "So you are the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war."

William Tecumseh Sherman - "The scenes on this field would have cured anybody of war."
