Tuesday and Wednesday students were introduced to our final project on the Civil War. Students will produce a newspaper that has various stories about life during the Civil War. Each group was assigned a major battle and a general to write about, and all groups will write an article on the changing role of women, the life of a soldier, a prediction on who will win the war, and a critical assessment of the economy, the draft, or the removal of Habeas corpus.
