Product Description
This activity is made up of quotes from various people during the Civil War era. The directions tell the students to summarize the quote and decide whether or not it was from a Northern government leader, a Southern government leader, a Northern soldier, a Southern soldier, an abolitionist, or "other." You will find quotes from Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Stephens, Frederick Douglass, John Brown, and more.

I have used this activity with students working in partners or by themselves. It is a great way for them to read a smattering of primary sources and analyze the sources to gauge who wrote or said them. I also included the answer key, which does not include a summary, but explains who each person was. (A quick tip: I envision that I will expand this in the future to form a Document Based Question/Assessment.)

This also pertains to the MA Common Core Frameworks under the Reading standards for History/Social Studies in grades 6-12. Specifically, it meets the standard: "Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions."
