For each side, create a timeline that illustrates the series of events that led to the war. Define the main issue for each side. Identify where the major battles took place. What were the attitudes of people on both sides regarding the War? Describe the soldiers that fought on each side (trained in war or not). Did Native Americans, African Americans, and women participate in the war, if so, on which side and how? Which side won the war? What were the consequences for each side? How many casualties were on each side? In your conclusion, address whether you think this war could have been avoided and if so, how?
