Leading Up to the Civil War


The American Civil War began on April 12, 1861 when the Confederate forces (made up of the southern states) fired upon Fort Sumter (belonging to the Union states). The war was declared over on May 10, 1865, but it took until that summer before all Confederate states officially surrendered. To this day, it remains one of the deadliest wars in American history, with the death toll numbering over 750,000 soldiers with an unknown number of civilian casualties.

The Leading Up to the Civil War map includes a colorful labeled teacher’s map and an unlabeled student map that the child can label and color.
