Doing original research involving a variety of sources, students will prepare a unit history/dossier of a regiment,
ship, battery, or battalion from the American Civil War.
Each dossier will consist of the following:



PAGE ONE:

A. Name of the Unit



B. IMAGE OF SOMETHING PERTAINING TO THE UNIT (flag, men who served, etc.)
