This site provides great resources along with a quick reference guide to many different events, battles, people, etc. during the American Civil War. As a History teacher this is a great tool for pulling out quick facts regarding the Civil War along with information that could supplement textbook reading for my students.

Main ideas of the war found here!

cameron kopp's curator insight, November 17, 2013 1:25 PM

This is an awesome video that summarizes the Civil War in a brief video.  I would use this video because it is brief video that makes alot of important points that go along with the Civil War. I would use this video to accompany a lecture, or used as a review of the unit because many points that I would talk about are also part of this video.  This is also smart because some students will need this because they are visual learners and will need the repitition in order to understand, and learn the information.
