A fantastic project focusing on the major battles of the Civil War for the middle or end of your Civil War unit.
Students begin by watching a power point presentation showing them pictures (paintings and photographs) of Civil War battles. Afterwards, they will choose a major battle, research it, and present a poster to the class displaying what they have learned about this battle.
The download includes everything you will need to start this project tomorrow!
