You and your partner will be given two battles, two or three famous people, and one specialty area to research. You will be making slide show presentations about each one of them. We will merge all our presentations together to make one about the Civil War battles, one about famous people of the Civil War, and one on special facts about the Civil War.

Use the websites below to help you in your research. You will also need to print out the worksheets to record your research. Please look over the scoring guide before you begin your presentations.
