Reconstruction After the Civil War

Learners draw an interesting parallel between Reconstruction after the Civil War and a child moving out from home in this lesson plan. They discuss the effect of the war on the Southern economy and region, and then engage in a simulation as a joint committee tasked with coming up with a plan for reconstructing the southern states and bringing them back to the Union.
