Community at War: Virtual Classroom

The Civil War touched every American's life and its legacies still impact us today. Our new online classroom, Community at War, explores the experience of war in Fredericksburg through interactive activities, primary sources and multimedia elements. Talk back and decision making features ask students to critically consider the information they learn and engage in a conversation with park staff and other students, creating a classroom that is truly nation-wide.
