Kit: Vermont in the Civil War

When students study the American Civil War, it is easy to find out about some of the national issues and big battles. However, learning how this conflict impacted Vermonters both on the battlefield and at home is more difficult. Through objects, letters, maps, art and music, this lending kit helps students comprehend the impact the war had on nearly every person in the nation and the state. Through primary documents and reference books, the kit also introduces students to using primary sources for historical inquiry so they can explore Civil War topics in their own communities.
