Civil war project

I would like my students to complete a project on a person, place or battle from the civil war. I am not sure what information to have them research or what sites have information that would be usable for them. If you have done a similar project I would appreciate any ideas you may have.

We have a list of projects students can choose from. My list is at school, but I'll send it to you later.

Last year we assigned groups of 3 students a particular battle. One student was the reporter, one a civilian, and one a soldier. They could decide whether to be union or confederate. We gave them a list of questions to research. We recorded their interviews on a Mac laptop with an image of the battlefield in the background. It turned out really neat!

Sounds like a great idea. I can also have the students interview a famous person from that time. One would be the famous person and two students could interview him/her one from the union side and one from the confederate.
