Florida in the Civil War: The Battle of Natural Bridge: Evaluating Primary Sources:

The Battle of Natural Bridge, the last major skirmish of the American Civil War in Florida, was fought near present-day Woodville, Florida, on March 6, 1865. The Confederate force was made up of trained troops, elderly men, and young volunteers from the nearby Florida Military and Collegiate Institute. The Union troops consisted mostly of African-American soldiers and disaffected Floridians who had cast their lot with the U.S. rather than remain with the Confederacy. The Confederates were ultimately victorious. By driving their Union opponents back to the Gulf of Mexico, they prevented the U.S. from controlling the St. Marks River and Tallahassee. In this lesson students will synthesize information from multiple primary sources to form a more complete perspective of this historical event.

Cultural Identity and Values: What is Culture?:

This lesson gives students an opportunity to examine the complex concept of culture and to understand that while all people have a culture, for some it may mean the country or region of their ancestors, and for others it may encompass areas including family, religion and community. Students learn that no matter how it is defined, culture gives people a sense of who they are. Before students examine their own cultural backgrounds and United States culture, they will develop a working definition of culture.
