Students will be asked to watch a video about the famous battle that many consider the first major engagement of the American Civil War. An article with a historical accounting of the battle is also required reading before beginning the webquest. The lead up to the battle, an initial Union advantage, and eventual Confederate victory are all reviewed in this assignment. Students will learn that the Union went into the battle without taking the Confederacy seriously at their own risk.
