Lesson

The Southern Campaign - The Battles of Camden and Musgrove Mill

Lesson Overview

The Revolutionary War in the South laid the groundwork for the eventual Patriot victory at Yorktown. There were many battles with both successes and defeats. Students will be asked to explore each southern battle with the primary essential question in mind. To guide them along this path, activities have been created that highlight certain aspects of southern battles, and where appropriate, show the connectivity of battles. Each battle will have a “Driving Question” that ties to the “Essential Question”. Students will be asked to complete activities that answer the “Driving Question”, culminating in a final project.
