150th Anniversary of The Battle of Gettysburg Sale!

Tomorrow marks the 150th Anniversary of what most consider to be the turning point of the American Civil War: The Battle of Gettysburg. Fought from July 1-4, 1863, the battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war at close to 50,000. The Washington Post is running an excellent series on the Civil War's anniversary that details the major events leading up to Gettysburg along with excellent battlefield maps and resources.

Of course, even more memorable than the battle to most Americans is President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address that November. A dedication ceremony was held then for the Gettysburg National Cemetery to honor the fallen Union soldiers. Lincoln's brief words there redefined the purpose of the war and what it meant to be an American.

In honor of this great anniversary, my gorgeous, visually-engaging Battles of the Civil War PowerPoint that covers the resources of both the North and South, essential knowledge about each Civil War battle, and the results is 50% off through July 4th weekend!

Additionally, this brand new Civil War and Reconstruction Unit Bundle is on sale as well! This incredible set of resources to teach the Civil War and Reconstruction includes 3 amazing PowerPoints, a film guide, primary sources, activities, projects, and worksheets!

Priced individually, this would be over $30 worth of resources but will be on sale for just $15 through the end of July 4th weekend!

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a wonderful Independence Day weekend!!
