The Civil War Takeovoer

The year is 1863 and your side of the classroom, which was in the South, has been taken over by the North. You are ecstatic about this because you believe the North to be the best of the best! Take on the persona of a true Civil War historical personality (Examples: Abe Lincoln, Dred Scott, John Brown, General Ulysses S Grant, General George McClellan, General Robert Shaw, Clara Barton, General Sherman etc…) from the North and convince the rest of your class (through Google Presentation, Prezi, etc.) that the North is the absolute best (and the South is the worst)! Be sure to state historically why the North is better than the South.

Convince your classmates by citing real examples from the Civil War and then state how your school, community, state would be like if this did happen in 1863 and the South was forced to do everything the way the North did.

You will be graded on historical content, creativity, and your ability to persuade your classmates
