My name is Russell Graff. I am a former high school teacher and a student of history. Together, students and I will be covering the battles, strategies, and tactics of the American Civil War. Every day, we will cover a battle from the American Civil War. We will start with the brief siege of Fort Sumter, and move through major events until the surrender of Robert E.

Students will be told stories about battles. As stories are fundamental to understanding history, they will gain a deeper appreciation for the time, the consequences of military conflict, and stretch their historical imagination.
I have a history degree from an accredited state university, have written on historical topics, and studied the topic for years. Any sensitive topics related to covering the Civil War will be covered objectively and through historical sources. The teachers bias will not play a factor- I am here to simply describe what happened, to the best of my ability.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Sources include: Shelby Foote's Civil War Narrative Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin Civil War sources from the Library of Congress Any questions will be answered from the Library of Congress. I will be using all of these sources to inform my research.
