Civil War Summary Booklet


This resource is not editable. I cannot allow the resource to be editable due to the Terms of Use on the clip art used. Thank you for understanding. It also does not come with information to help your students understand the Civil War. You would need to provide the materials to teach it.

Printing Notes:

I would suggest printing "as image" to avoid any potential issues. Please also make sure your adobe reader (or the like program) is up-to-date.
