Civil war research, writing, sharing.

Each group will have one blog.  -- but you can give permission for team mates to post your blog, or the designated recorder will just get email from the other people, create a blog post, and paste in their work.

Each group member will pick one unique topic.  A couple paragraphs is all I'm looking for.  Cool things you didn't know about are the goal.

Here are some possible starting points. (Actually, your book is a great starting point).

Battles: Antietam, Gettysburg, Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, The Wilderness, Richmond, Mechanicsburg, Murfreesboro, New Orleans, Vicksburg, Shiloh and Morgan's Raid

People: Grant, Lee, McClellan, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Sheridan, Sherman, Stonewall Jackson, Clara Barton, Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Henry Clay, Louisa May Alcott, John Brown

Other: The Calvary, The Emancipation Proclamation, Weapons, Battlefield Health Care, The Ironclads and Civil War Prison Camps

Assessment, A short, concise summary of your event.  Description of why it's IMPORTANT to the civil war as a whole.

EXTRA AWESOMENESS:  Include pictures; LINK to outside sources.

You must cite your sources (at least 2).
Your must not plagiarize.

We will build one giant timeline of all our events that we can all see.
We will visit each others' blogs to read, think, and respectfully comment.
