My oldest son is a huge civil war buff. He loves reading about it, watching movies, studying the battles and their weapons. Truthfully, he’s basically done his own history studies since he discovered his love for all things Civil War.

During our travels last year we visited a historic battlefield. My children learned more in those two and half hours than I could have ever taught them from books and papers. My oldest wanted to stop and read all the signs, while my younger three homeschoolers listened to the information as we listened on the radio. After we had reached the end of the line, we had a picnic lunch and they were able to complete their first Junior Ranger booklets.

However, I know not everyone is able to visit a National Battlefield. So we do the next best thing and create a unit study that will, hopefully, bring the civil war “to life” for them. This may be easier said than done, especially if you aren’t sure where to look.

That’s why I’ve searched and scoured the internet for you! I’ve done my best to find nice, high quality printables that will help you create a unit study to remember!
