An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on the Civil War In the early 1850's, there were numerous opinions on federal law and authority. Many people expressed these differences of opinions through speeches and writings. A dividing line developed between the industrial states and agricultural ones. The needs of these people were as varied as the opinions expressed. This issue produced doctrines of dissention and a desire for the south to secede from the union.

Political and military leaders were instrumental in the directions and events that identify the defining moments of this time period. Slavery, the interpretation of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Articles of Confederation are documents in the forefront.

There were numerous events (e.g. speeches, debates, battles etcà) and conditions (geography, seasonal climate, and distances) that played pivotal roles in the outcome of this era in history.

The affect of this war on combatants, civilians, the physical environment and the nation's future will be examined.
