The Important Battles of the Civil War Webquest uses a great website that allows students to get a better understanding of twelve major battles during the Civil War. The webquest also covers battle tactics, generals, and the goals of the major campaigns during the Civil War. The webquest is very easy to follow for students in grades 5-12.
