The American Civil War is one of the most important events in our nation's history. Not only was there a significant amount of lives lost during the war, but America was forever changed by it. Women took on new roles and would continue to expand upon them even after the war was over. African Americans became citizens after the war and states that had seceded from the Union struggled to return to the Union. Former slaves had to adjust to their newfound freedom and found it difficult to live like their white counterparts. The American Civil War is more than just a series of battles fought. It was a turning point for our nation that shaped future policies, laws and events. That is why we will be learning about the American Civil War for the next two weeks.
