If I fought in the Battle of Gettysburg...

If I fought in the Battle of Gettysburg...

The students will create daily journal entries, imagining (based on historical information) that they were a soldier fighting each day of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War.

Introduction

 

It's 1863, imagine you are a soldier fighting for either the Union or the Confederacy during the American Civil War.  Your commanding officer orders you to begin marching north to Gettysburg, PA. For the South, this may be the oppurtunity you've been waiting for. A Confederate victory here may open up the door for an attack on the capital of the Union, Washington, D.C.
