This is a reading guide that follows the book "If you Lived at the Time of the Civil War" by Kay Kirlin Moore and Kay Moore.
The book follows many aspects of the civil war and aligns with many standards of learning. I designed this for the Virginia Studies SOL- specifically:
Civil War and Postwar Eras
VS.7 The student will demonstrate knowledge of the issues that divided our nation and led to the Civil War by
a) identifying the events and differences between northern and southern states that divided Virginians and led to secession, war, and the creation of West Virginia;
b) describing Virginia’s role in the war, including identifying major battles that took place in Virginia;
c) describing the roles played by whites, enslaved African Americans, free African Americans, and American Indians.
