Homework - 8th grade
We are now entering the Civil War.  We have looked at the causes of the war and now we are embarking on the various battles.  As part of our studies we will examine the battles at Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg and Vicksburg.  We will look at Sherman's march across the South burning everything in his path.  The Civil War will end at Appomatox Court House.  We will also look at the Gettysburg Address, the Emancipation Proclamation, the re-election of President Lincoln in 1864, and Lincoln's assassination shortly after the war ends. 
On a separate note, students are reminded that reading notes must be their own when used for any and all quizzes.  These notes may not be shared and should not be a re-writing of the textbook.  Copying text from the book is not note-taking.
