Foreword

 

Broomhandle Books created its Continuing Education Series to provide readers with thoughtful considerations on books read by others. Instead of the dashed off “reviews” one might find at retailers or club websites, the Continuing Education pieces are meant to provide a more in-depth consideration of the books themselves.

 

However, in this particular case, we found an outline of of the American Civil War (or War Between the States) and Reconstruction that we thought could be a useful study guide for children or for anyone who may be exploring this period of history for the first time. The outline collapses the complex events surrounding this time period into an outline of key events that need to be explored in order to fully understand the Civil War and the Period of Reconstruction. This outline was written in a fairly simple and comprehensive way so that it would serve the purpose of young readers and/or those who have absolutely no familiarity with the basic situation inside and outside the U.S. during the years from 1817 to 1877. If downloaded as a .doc or .txt file, it can be easily printed or uploaded to a separate file so notes can be added by the student.

 

For whatever purpose you may use this outline, we hope you find it useful. Enjoy!
