This worksheet allows students to use a primary source document to learn about the Confederate retreat from Gettysburg. I use this worksheet to help students understand problems faced by the Confederate Army after the Battle of Gettysburg.
This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is print off the primary source from the following website for classroom use or direct students to the website to answer the worksheet questions:
The primary source document is labeled (Lee's Retreat From Gettysburg, 1863)
Students read the document and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 8 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. The worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
