Website Spotlight: Civil War Animated Map



Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

Here are the possibilities:

I. The Road to War:

The Mexican-American War
The Road to War

II. The Eastern Theater:

The First Battle of Bull Run
The Peninsula Campaign
Jackson's Valley Campaign
Second Manassas
Battle of Antietam
The Battle of Fredericksburg
Chancellorsville
Gettysburg
The Overland Campaign
Petersburg and Appomattox

III. The Western Theater:

Wilson's Creek
Forts Henry and Donelson
Pea Ridge
Shiloh
Perryville/Stones River
Vicksburg
Chickamauga
Chattanooga: Missionary Ridge
Brice's Crossroad
March on Atlanta
Franklin/Nashville
