CIVIL WAR AND THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SOUTH.
Broward County Schools, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
A SOCIAL STUDIES UNIT ON THE CIVIL WAR IS PRESENTED. INCLUDED ARE ITS OUTCOME, THE ISSUES WHICH WERE LEFT TO POSTWAR SETTLEMENT, AND THE ATTEMPT OF THE NORTH TO IMPOSE ITS VERSION OF RECONSTRUCTION UPON THE SOUTH. THE HISTORY STUDENT IS ENCOURAGED TO SEE THE 16-YEAR PERIOD OF CIVIL WAR AND RECONSTRUCTION IN PERSPECTIVE AND TO REALIZE THAT THE POLITICAL, MILITARY, SOCIAL, RELIGIOUS, AND ECONOMIC HAPPENING OF THE ERA ARE INTERRELATED. STUDENTS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT THE NATION LOST ITS ABILITY TO RESOLVE SECTIONAL DIFFERENCES BY COMPROMISE, THAT WARS RAISE MANY MORE ISSUES THAN THEY SOLVE, AND THAT THE UNSETTLED WAR ISSUES WERE FINALLY RESOLVED BY COMPROMISE. THERE ARE EIGHT ASSIGNMENTS IN THE UNIT, EACH ASSIGNMENT HAS SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES, REQUIRED AND OPTIONAL READING ASSIGNMENTS, STUDY GUIDE QUESTIONS, VOCABULARY, WORDS TO DEFINE OR IDENTIFY, SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS, AND DEPTH OPPORTUNITIES. APPENDED ARE AN EXCERPT FROM "LINCOLN AND THE ROAD TO WAR" WHICH PRESENTS A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF LINCOLN'S DECISION TO SEND PROVISIONS TO REINFORCE FOR SUMTER, THE TEXT OF THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, A MAP DEPICTING RECONSTRUCTION IN THE SOUTH, AN EXCERPT FROM "THE ROAD TO REUNION" WHICH PRESENTS THE POST WAR BITTERNESS OF THE SOUTH TOWARD THE NORTH, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF RELATED BOOKS AND FILMSTRIPS.
