In Unit 8, we will focus our study on the secession of the South from the Union and the events of the Civil War. This will include the causes of the war, which spanned greater than the issue of slavery. As a nation divided, each side presented different strengths and weaknesses. Through our learning of the Union and Confederacy, major battles, and turning points of the Civil War, we will see the results of a nation that fought against itself.
