What Happened Here? The Civil War Knowledge Cards
From blood-soaked battlefields that swallowed up a generation of young men to the shade of a stately oak where former slaves learned to read, this tour of the Civil War in 48 cards leads across familiar and unfamiliar territory. The battles are narrated, but so are bread riots and early civil rights protests. Each card bears a regional map on one side, with a pinpointed location, the name of the place, and a date. On the reverse is a pithy essay explaining what happened there and then. As you quiz yourself and others you’ll develop a rich and textured understanding of the conflict between the states.
