The Civil War – A Closer Look
Mr. Vermeer

The Civil War is one of the key moments in American History. It is also one of the most dramatic parts of our history. Students will be given an opportunity to learn more about this war by: developing a timeline of the key events, researching a topic and creating an I movie documentary, and by viewing and discussing videos by Ken Burns, and the films “Gods and Generals” and “Gettysburg”. After taking this course, students will have a much richer appreciation of the war as well as the experience of creating their own documentary video.
