Women's Contributions in the Civil War

Women's history is often hidden, but pupils discover the role women played in the Civil War using a series of video clips. After reviewing the interview with a scholar of women's history, class members fill out a chart and then research an intriguing aspect of the presentation. Using that information, class members create an online museum to highlight women's contributions during the Civil War.
