• Create a Google Earth Tour of these battles by locating each one on a map. Add battle map overlays if you can find them.

Produce a “living graph” of these battles: in other words, have dates running along the page, and place the events either towards the top if they are Union victories, and lower down if they are Union defeats. Choose your exact spot based on how much of a victory / defeat the battle was. An online tool for creating Living Graphs can be found at www.classtools.net.
