Unit VI - Civil War

  • The Civil War history evaluates how the United States resolves its sectional differences over the issue of slavery and the division power between state and federal authority.  Students will evaluate what factors led the Union Army to triumph over the Confederacy, as well as, how President Lincoln struggles with deciding how to handle the issue of slavery.  Another element that students will examine is how the Civil War impacted the lives of all Americans, such as women and African Americans.
