Civil War Letters

One primary source my younger son is learning from is the website Civil War Letters. These are letters from an Iowa soldier, Newton Scott, to his family and to his sweetheart.

Reading these helps put a human face to the Civil War.

This is an assignment for my younger son's "classical homeschool school thing".

What a fantastic resource! Thank you so much - I am bookmarking it for next year when we study the Civil War.
