Looking at the Civil War 150 Years Later

The Virginia Historical Society is outdoing itself by leaps and bounds in research material and educational displays for the Civil War sesquicentennial. For anyone out there that is doing any sort of teaching or classwork on the Civil Wars. An example would be this great bookend to the Civil War and Reconstruction Units.

The Historical Society is also producing videos on the war's impact in Virginia which is great material on the war's effect on society and not just military tactics and history.

This is only part 1 of a several part video series. I am currently working on  fitting these in to lesson plans. For further reading on displays and research done by the Virginia Historical Society can be seen here at their website.
