Thinglink Activity


For this activity we are going to create a Civil War Thinglink.

  1. Each of you will be assigned one of the primary sources from the set below. Click on the link to go to that primary source via the Library of Congress.
  2. Read the bibliographic information. If you need more information about the topic of your primary source, feel free to Google it.
  3. Go to and click on "Edit."
  4. Tag your image onto the Civil War map in the appropriate geographic location. Include a brief analysis and explanation of the primary source (how did it fit into the Civil War, why is it important?
  5. With a partner, find and locate another Civil War primary source that you would like to add to this map; tag it to the Thinglink map.
