    From periscopes and lean-to shelters to uniforms and regimental flags, this interactive book explores the history and inventions of the Civil War through building projects and activities. Finished products include a set of Civil War drums, secret codes, and homemade paper with berry ink. Detailed step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and templates for each project are interspersed with historical facts, biographies, anecdotes, and trivia about the real-life models. Most of the building can be done using simple household supplies such as construction paper, tape, markers, glue, cardboard tubes, string, yarn, aluminum foil, and cardboard boxes. This new edition celebrates the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War with substantially revised text and updated activities.
