Civil War Project: Wanted Poster & Plaque Project

This creative, but higher-level thinking assignment has students analyzing various Civil War-era figures as either criminals or heroes based on how they are viewed by the North or South.

One one side of this worksheet, students create a commemorative plague to honor the great accomplishments of one person and on the opposite side create a wanted poster to capture him or her as a known criminal.

An included direction sheet describes how each poster/plaque must include a picture, and brief description, date, reasons for being wanted or for the award, last known location, and who is presenting the award or who the person is wanted by.

The list of possible choices includes Civil War figures Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, J.E.B Stuart, Robert E. Lee, Robert Gould Shaw, William T. Sherman, Harriet Tubman, John Brown, and Ulysses S. Grant.
