Yesterday, Dianne Krause posted on her blog a great resource for finding US Civil War lesson ideas and resources. Teaching the Civil War with Technology is a blog and a wiki full of technology resources and ideas for teaching the US Civil War.
In my own research yesterday, I found a very interesting map resource about the US Civil War. The Georgia Institute of Technology has compiled an impressive collection of GIS files depicting Civil War battlefields.
Applications for Education
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s collection of GIS files depicting Civil War battlefields could be a great instructional resource. By examining these files students can analyze the strategies of the Union and Confederate armies based on geography.
