Homework Help: U.S. Civil War

Civil War Witness

 

The U.S. Civil War lasted from 1861-1865. It was between the Northern States (the Union) and the Southern States (the Confederacy). 

Mathew Brady was a photographer during the U.S. Civil War. At that time cameras were very, very new. Beginning with the First Battle of Bull Run in 1861 and continuing throughout the entire Civil War, Brady photographed the long, bloody Voices of the Civil Warconflict. Civil War Witness tells his story and shares his photographs that are a valuable historical record. You can look at many of his photographs online at: Library of Congress American Memory: Selected Civil War Photographs.

Looking at the photographs will give you an idea of the time and place. If you read Voices of the Civil War, Brady’s photographs will come to life. In it you can read the diaries or letters of a Confederate soldier, a Union Marine, a Confederate doctor, a Union Colonel, a Confederate Ranger and a slave who was freed after the war.

By reading about an event from the perspective of different people, you can get a more well-rounded idea of what that event or time period was really like. You can do the same thing by reading books that tell you about the different people, customs and events of a certain time period. Listed below are books, websites & databases that will help you learn about the U.S. Civil War.

To give you a start looking at what a soldier’s life was like during the Civil War, here is a Hardee Hat that was authorized for use in 1858, and nicknamed after the future Confederate general who sat on the board to choose the style. The light blue cord signified the wearer as a member of the infantry.

Homework Help: Pioneers

Homework Help: Pioneers

In American history, the time period know as the Old West is the time between the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 and the last continental state, Arizona, being added to the Union in 1912 (Two states were added later, Hawaii and Alaska.) People living during this time period are well known for populating the land west of the Mississippi. Stories from this time period often recount the legendary deeds of explorers, trappers, and mountain men. One of them is William Frederick Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill. Buffalo Bill is one of the most well-known larger-than-life figures of the American West. He served for the Union during the Civil War, was a scout for the US Army, received the Medal of Honor in 1872, performed in shows depicting life on the frontier and founded Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.

By reading about an event from the perspective of different people, you can get a more well-rounded idea of what that event or time period was really like. You can do the same thing by reading books that tell you about the different people, customs and events of a certain time period. Listed below are books, websites & databases that will help you learn about the U.S. Civil War.

To give you a start looking at what life was like in the American West, here is a Conestoga Wagon, Hundreds of years ago, travelers depended on wagons and carriages just as we depend on our cars today. Made in Pennsylvania about 1803, this wagon hauled farm produce or machinery. As pioneers moved west, families used wagons like this one to move all of their family belongings and tools west of the Appalachian Mountains.
