Civil War Map

Visuals are a great way to help students make connections. To help students better understand the Civil War and secession of the Southern states, I created a large visual of the unions states, confederate states, border states, and territories. 

Using the Electoral College Map I created at the beginning of the school year as a template, I re-traced the southern states in grey, the border states in yellow, and used brown paper to cover the various territories that existed in the west. I already had the union states completed because they were the blue states from the electoral college map.
It’s the perfect reference and adds some color to the wall!
