Product Description
Civil War Primary Source Letter Worksheet

This amazing, moving letter from Union officer Sullivan Ballou was written a week before he died at the Battle of Bull Run toward the beginning of the Civil War. It was famously featured in Ken Burns' documentary on the Civil War as an eloquent and touching ode to American values and the bonds of family.

After reading a slightly shortened version of the letter, students complete a set of analysis questions for which an answer key is included. Finally, students compose their own letter using a set of brief instructions that require them to demonstrate knowledge of the Civil War, battles, generals, and how life was for soldiers.

This resource can also be downloaded at a discount as part of the Civil War and Reconstruction Unit Bundle.
