The Excretory System removes waste that collects in the body during metabolism. Metabolism is when the bady takes in air, food and liquid. The body uses most of these things to grow and make energy, but the body can’t use all of it. The leftovers are called waste. These waste products can be toxic if they are not eliminated. Major organs of the excretory system include the kidneys, liver, bladder, lungs and large intestine. Yes, even the lungs – when you exhale, the lungs eliminate gases your body can’t use.

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.
