Teaching the Civil War

Expand/Collapse Teaching the Civil War


The Civil War was a pivotal moment in U.S. history—occurring at a time when technology was rapidly changing how people connected and communicated, the twin debates over slavery and federal power vs. states rights were reaching a climax, and arguments over women’s rights became increasingly pressing.

This collection brings together a diverse set of resources to consider the causes, context, and course of the Civil War.

For more resources on the Civil War, check out our new collection centered on the PBS drama Mercy Street, bringing together clips from the show along with videos introducing Civil War-era issues and topics.
