Famous Figures of the Civil War
From soldiers and nurses to presidents and anti-slavery crusaders! Movable paper figures to cut, color, and assemble.
As the Southern states determine to rid themselves of federal control, President Lincoln determines to preserve the Union. The country is stirred by the words of Harriet Beecher Stowe as she describes the tragic life of slaves taken from their families and forced into a life of hard labor. Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee lead their men into bloody battles to determine the course of our nation. Now children ages 6 to 12 can make movable action figures and relive events of the American Civil War with Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton, a Confederate soldier, a Union soldier, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Robert E. Lee, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, and Ulysses S. Grant. Includes a detailed biography section, reading list for additional information, and versions (colorable and pre-colored) of each figure.
This set makes an excellent accompaniment to The Story of the World, Volume 4.
