Florida, NY 10921
Subjects Social Studies, English/Language Arts
Grade 8th Grade
Author Mark Stewart and Donald Lewis, S.S. Seward Institute, Florida, NY
Students learn how Civil War soldiers lived and fought. They make connections between the war and its effects at home. They then write historical fiction accounts of the lives of local Civil War veterans. We used the cemetery in our community to identify actual soldiers, but you can use one closer to your school.
