Here is a great resource to summarize the main events that led to the outbreak of the Civil War. The close reading passage contains summaries of the Missouri Compromise, The Compromise of 1850, The Kansas-Nebraska Act, The Dred Scott Decision, The Lincoln-Douglass Debates, The Election of 1860, and the Secession of the Southern States. Each section has vocabulary and review questions.
The PowerPoint follows the reading with beautiful maps and visuals. There is also an optional project for students laid out at the end of the PowerPoint.
