Civil War Voices Knowledge Cards

$ 9.95

With excerpts from Civil War letters, diaries, speeches, and news articles, the cards in this quiz deck echo the voices of people involved in the epic struggle: Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, Frederick Douglass and Louisa May Alcott, Union and Confederate soldiers and sailors, reporters, politicians, and more. Each card front presents a brief quotation; the back identifies the speaker and the context in concise, lively prose. With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards. Size: 3.25" x 4"
