Civil War Trails

We have been studying the Civil War for the past few months. I love how the Sonlight Curriculum looks at this time period from all perspectives. We have enjoyed the books we have read aloud: Across Five Aprils, Freedom Train and Shades of Gray.

It is common place to see the Civil War Trails signs here. I recently picked up a brochure and checked the website. There are many sites in this area that have have a sign with info.

Our goal is to see as many as possible and document them in a photo album

Here are two recent stops:

Gatesville North Carolina

Elizabeth City North Carolina

We went to the waterfront which had 2 stars on the map. One was a water battle and a year later it was the site of an execution. We also visited the Museum of the Albermarle.
