Ms. Clarks American History

January 21, 2013

The beginning of 2nd semester brought the Civil War to Ms. Clark's American History class.  Classes have been filled with deep discussion on Civil War leaders, strategies of the Union and Confederacy, battle plans and descriptions, and, most recently, video of Civil War reenactments.  Another topic of discussion has been the fact that this war is the first American war to be documented through photographs.  American journalists jumped at the chance to take photos of battle scenes and brought the carnage of the war into American homes.  These photographs truly bring the Civil War to life.
