Civil War & Reconstruction Reading on Daniel Sickles
A brief, fascinating biography of the amazing life of Daniel Sickles - the man who had his leg blown off in the Civil War, killed the son of Francis Scott Key after having an affair with his wife, and played an integral role in Reconstruction after the American Civil War.
This story brings this little-known but colorful character to life for students, and then has a set of 8 guided reading questions to check for understanding. The questions are a mix reading and critical thinking levels.
