This course offers an opportunity for engaged learning through visitation to Civil War era battlefields, historical sites, museums, and other organizations. The study tour will allow students to gain first person perspective into the Civil War by walking the ground where key events occurred, viewing and interpreting historical artifacts, and interacting with public history professionals to comprehend how the Civil War is presented to the general public. Foundation for the study tour will be laid by brief lectures, assigned readings, and assessments that will help facilitate student learning during the study tour. All lectures, readings, and assignments will be conducted entirely online in a Blackboard shell, with the exception of a brief orientation meeting the week prior to departure. The tour will be conducted from Sunday to Friday during the week immediately following final examinations.
