You can use this as a power point or a gallery walk to teach Texas History students about Texas during the Civil War. There are 33 slides, a 21 question note guide (the answers are included where appropriate), and a teacher information page. See the preview for a closer look!
Sample questions include:
--Why did Lincoln's election make Southern leaders believe their lifestyle and practice of slavery was threatened?
--What were a man’s options if he was conscripted for the Confederacy but did not support its cause?
--Draw a picture illustrating a key Union strategy. What else could it have been referred to besides the Anaconda Plan?
--Identify a similarity and a difference between the Battles of Galveston, Sabine Pass, and Brownsville.
--Put the following events in chronological order (1 being the earliest, 10 being the latest).
