The Civil War: Up Close and Personal

Young scholars take an in depth look at different aspects of the Civil War. Using primary source documents, they discover that people who lived during the war are not so different from them. They read about the experience of a Confederate solider in a POW camp. They also discuss how the language used helps to examine the time period in which it was written.
