Studying The Civil War!
I am studying the Civil War with my youngest son and I am loving it. National Geographic's Atlas of the Civil War is an excellent, comprehensive book that covers every detail of the Civil War. It has excellent time lines for each year of the war.
The Civil War documentary by Ken Burns is wonderful. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. I had numerous people recommend it to me and it is regarded as one of the best documentaries of all time.
Fields of Fury does a great job of highlighting the important battles and people of the Civil War.
The Civil War for Kids was one of several craft books that I got to do activities with my son. One of the things we are doing is making a Civil War alphabet book.
The Long Road to Gettysburg is an audio book telling about the events leading up to Gettysburg through the eyes of a Confederate and a Union soldier.
