In 5th Grade the students are learning about the civil war. The civil war was the war about freeing the slaves. It was the North or the Union against the South or the conferedt. The South wanted the slaves but the north didn’t agree with it. The war lasted for 4 years. During the civil war the slaves used the Underground RailRoad to escape from their plantations. The slaves were whipped and beaten when caught trying to escape. Because of this people who were against the slaves would let the slaves sleep in their houses so that the slaves would be safe. Allie, a 5th Grader said, “I like when my teacher dresses up and teaches us about the civil war.” All in all learning about the civil war is interesting, fun, and an important part of our American history.
