Product Description
The America Civil War was fought from 1861-1865. Armies comprised of Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery fought for their country’s ideology and way of life, usually with horrific results. This game helps your students understand the roll that the units and tactics came together on the battlefield in a fun, easy to learn card game. In this game, students build an “army” out of cards and then try to strategically play those cards in order to win the battle against an opponent. This game familiarizes them with the units, fighting style, and some of the notable personalities that made up the American Civil War. It has been tested in an 8th grade classroom, but has also been enjoyed by students in 6th, 9th, and 11th grade as well. It is a great extension activity for students who finish other work early, or as an introduction, spare-time, or energizer to your unit on the Civil War.

Object: Build an effective army with a pre-determined point total. Then defeat your opponents army by strategically placing and deploying your cards to cause the most damage possible.
