Civil War Era in North Dakota

The North Dakota Studies program at the State Historical Society of North Dakota (SHSND) has developed three lessons to teach about the Civil War Era in North Dakota. These lessons will prepare the students to engage in discussions, debates, research, or writing assignments using primary documents, photographs and maps. High school or 8th grade teachers may find these lessons useful in courses on the Civil War, U.S. History, or North Dakota history.

The Civil War Era in North Dakota lessons have been aligned to the North Dakota Content and Achievement Standards for Social Studies.
