War Between the States: Civil War


This Jackdaw is the appropriate reading level for upper elementary, middle school and high school students reading below grade level. It contains the same, ready-to-use, hands-on historical documents as the original, upper-level Jackdaw; most of the documents are actual-size replicas. The fully reproducible Broadsheets provide historical background for understanding the documents.

Illustrations, posters, military documents and personal letters bring to life the thoughts and actions of Lincoln, Jackson, Grant and Lee, and the “Billy Yanks” and “Johnny Rebs” who fought under them. Add history and color to your classroom with the Confederate recruiting notice, the Union recruiting poster and Civil War photographs. Historian: David Johnson, adapted by Muriel L. Dubois.
