This video focuses on each year of the war from 1861-1865. The video also does an excellent job explaining the major campaigns, important battles, and key people of the Civil War. The video does a great job of complimenting major educational concepts being taught in the classroom on the Civil War. Students will find the video interesting and engaging. From my perspective this is the best 30 minute student friendly documentary about the Civil War. With discussion and answering of questions in class this video worksheet will take about one class period to complete. Thirty-eight questions are on the worksheet and an answer sheet is included for the teacher. Finally you can always download the this video right to your computer hard drive by using http://keepvid.com/
