Here's a visually rich set of word wall cards/posters that you can display in your classroom as you teach your students about Virginia in the Civil War (aligned with Virginia Studies VS.7)!
Key terms/places/people include: abolitionist, agricultural, armory/arsenal, battle, blockade, campaign, capital, civil war, clash, commander, conflict, defeat, draw, economy, elect, enslaved, fall, flee, free state, industrialized, iron-clad ship, labor, navy, plantation, port, president, raid, raise crops, rebellion/revolt, rely, right, role, secede (secession), slave state, slavery, surrender, territory, troops, Underground Railroad, Union, the United States, western territories, Virginia, Harpers Ferry, the Union, the Confederate States of America, West Virginia, Bull Run (Manassas), Fredericksburg, Richmond, Norfolk and Hampton, Appomattox Court House, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, Robert E. Lee, and Ulysses S. Grant.
There is a word wall card for each of the above terms/places/people. In addition, there are five posters included (the Civil War, the Road to Civil War, the Creation of West Virginia, Roles of Virginians during the Civil War, and Important Battles & Events of the Civil War in Virginia).
Note: the seven people cards have a name and picture only - no facts. I've done this purposely because of how I use these cards in my classroom. If you would prefer to have key information on these cards, please email me at email@example.com and I will add those to the set. Also, there are a few duplicate cards (i.e., elect, right, etc.) from my other sets, since some words are used in multiple standards.
