The Skirmisher

A Civil War Journal for Students

The Skirmisher is a Civil War Journal for Students. Each volume of The Skirmisher examines a topic relating to the American Civil War. Students can use The Skirmisher to take an in-depth look at a variety of major historical figures and events, laid out in the form of a newsletter that includes historical facts, images, and excerpts from primary sources. Each Skirmisher includes a final activity that will help students engage more closely with the topic while building their critical reading and historical analysis skills.
