The Split History of the Civil War
A Perspectives Flip Book
by Stephanie Fitzgerald
In 1861 the United States was at a crossroads. People in the Southern states believed that Northerners were trying to change their way of life. People in the North were upset that Southerners wanted to govern themselves. The issue of slavery was caught in the middle. As the events of the Civil War unfolded, each side fought for what they believed in.
Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: start from one end and immerse yourself in one viewpoint on a major historical event. Then flip it over and immerse yourself in another, very different viewpoint. Readers will come away with deeper understanding of events and history's many perspectives.
