Civil War Quilt Webquest

Below please find a list of the Quilt Square Topics. Click on each for more information about each square and the online resources that I have approved.

  • The MAIN LEARNING GOAL is to learn about the Civil War, and demonstrate the learning with your squares
  • If you trade topics, please let me know so that I can update them
  • You may use books in addition to these online resources, but please DO NOT keep digging online—these links (and links within these pages) should be sufficient

Reminder–Squares can be made of fabric, paper, cardboard, etc. They can be glued, drawn, or sewn.
