    "The SCIM-C process of historical thinking is a means to scaffold historical thinking in the social studies classroom.  The five steps of this process ask that students: Summarize the source, by identifying the author and mein purpose of the source. Contextualizing the period of time and the place in which the source was produced. Inferring the perspectives and interpretations of the source's message. Monitoring what other information is needed in order to understand the source. Corroborating the similarities and differences between the various sources which they have examined regarding this topic. By going through this process, students would be better able to make sense of the source and present stronger text-based evidence regarding what they have learned from this source."

Flag Collection | American Civil War Museum - 0 views

  • In Our Vaults Since 1892 when the first flag was donated to the Museum of the Confederacy, we have continued to preserve these important artifacts, culminating in a collection that includes more than 822 total flags and flag fragments. These include wartime, postwar, miniatures, and reproductions. The Museum houses the largest single collection of Confederate and Union national, state, presentation, company and regimental flags including nearly 500 wartime flags. More than half of the Museum’s flag collection are captured flags entrusted to the Museum by mandate of the United States Congress and the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1905 and 1906. The remaining flags are from private donations. This collection continues to increase in this manner today. If you would like to inquire about donating a flag or related object to The American Civil War Museum, please email us. The Museum’s flag collection is housed in a dedicated 1,300 square-foot storage and examination facility. The 100 extra-fragile silk flags are preserved in a custom-built flat storage system. In the 1990s, the Museum embarked upon a systematic program to conserve the flag collection and increase research and access to the flags. Requests for research information and access to the flag collection have steadily increased over the years. Individuals, researchers, authors and publishers all over the world seek out the Museum for research information on its flag collection.

      Interesting
  • The Confederate battle flag has been the topic of much discussion regarding its meaning and symbolism. We asked our historian, John Coski, to discuss the flag and its meanings. John is an acknowledged expert on the Confederate battle flag, and is author of The Confederate Battle Flag: America's Most Embattled Emblem (2005, Harvard University Press). His answers can be seen in this video.
