The 16th President Learning Activities

------------------------------------------

Since 1994, I have developed a large group of Lincoln or U.S. History learning or information sites.  I have online puzzles, reading activities, informational sites.  The topics cover Civil War, 16th President (Abraham Lincoln), and some local historically-related sites such as "Following the Lincoln Memorial Highway," a "Virtual Fieldtrip through Coles County, Illinois" to find a history of Lincoln in the county.  Civil War technology and the U.S. Navy are covered.  I have grouped the large collection by chronology or content.  Just choose your interest, click and then choose specifically what you are interested in.  Some of these sites are oriented toward students of all ages.  You might want to complete the activities.  Good luck!
