Like most generals, if I had it to do over again, I would have organized things a bit differently. I would have had either five or ten questions on each story and made it easier to teach separately. However, we don't always get the chance to go back and change the outcome.
So here we are: a decent 33-question quiz, all about war, ready to go, but tied to certain stories from the blue (or red) high school anthology. You can also get these stories online on your own, probably. The only issue is that the quiz does not break apart nicely, so it will take some reformatting if you choose to skip one or more story or the notes (trivia).
“A Wartime Journal” Mary Chestnut 1-9
"Letter to His Sister" Robert E. Lee 10-13
"The Gettysburg Address" Abraham Lincoln 14-19
"The Portable Phonograph" Walter Van Tilburg Clark 20-27
Decent mix of stories, and I felt as effective as the later War and Conflict elective course our school developed. I mean, do we really need and entire class with four novels to figure out war is bad?
So quick/easy that a social studies teacher could use it as part of a Civil War unit in order to bring in some primary sources, but I assume you are always doing that, anyhow. Perfect for homeschool because you're in and out without having to discuss war atrocities.
