Unless you already have instructions from your teacher, below are instructions to help you get started.
We suggest you begin with the "Let's Explore!" section and proceed through each stop. Along the way you will visit historic sites related to the Civil War and the Battle of Fredericksburg. After you have completed the "Let's Explore!" section, head over to the activity modules. There are three, labeled soldier, civilian, and slave. Take your pick on where to start, but make sure you complete each one! As you proceed through the activity pages, you will meet various historical figures who experienced the Battle of Fredericksburg. Each one is a real person who lived during the Civil War, and each one will tell you about a new aspect of the experience of battle. Remember, when you see a passage labeled "primary account," those are the words of the people who wrote them. Just like us, sometimes they spelled things wrong and wrote things funny, but we left it that way so you could hear their voices.
