Civil War Resources Worksheet & Song Lyrics
This informative but humorous worksheet features a chart that compares the resources of the Union and Confederacy as well as the hilarious lyrics to the Civil War song "John Haralson".
The introduction explains how resources for war were in short supply in the South and the Confederacy resorted to collecting urine to make gunpowder from the nitre. My students always find this song hysterical and are amazed that it is true! The song also humanizes soldiers from the war who created this fanciful tune. A Youtube link to an audio version of the song being performed is included.
A worksheet including 7 analysis questions is included with an answer key as well. This is a great supplemental activity for your Civil War unit!
