The Civil War comes to Sardis!

The fifth graders learned about the Civil War from Jeff Frey.

But luckily, no fighting was involved!

Here is what I learned from the presentation about the Civil War:

  • During the Civil War, people had to have a tooth on both the top and bottom to enter the war! 
  • Our presenter said the fastest way to travel then was by train, if there were no cows or any other animals on the track.
  • Their clothes were made of wool and cotton.
  • Ulysses S. Grant was the General of the Union.
  • The Confederates won the Battle of Fort Sumpter!
  • Abe Lincoln was the President during the Civil War.
