Program Description   Sometime on September 17, 1862, Private Benjamin I. Scott of the 18th Virginia Infantry was killed at the battle of Antietam. However, his fate remained unknown as his body was one of the nearly 300,000 that remained unidentified in the Civil War. In this program, students will explore a mother’s agonizing search for her missing son as revealed in the letters of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, Union General Joseph Hooker, and a number of other Union and Confederate officers as they tried to determine Private Scott’s fate.

With a primary source workshop program, there is a pre-program activity that students must participate in as a primer for the workshop. Information will be provided upon confirmation of the program booking.

Objectives   This presentation will explore the cultural, political, and martial climate of the Civil War and provide insight into the wartime experience of Mrs. Fanny Scott. The primary source exploration will serve as a useful tool for learning about the effects the Civil War had on the lives of those on the home front.

Through discussion, reading, and examination of primary source documents, students will:
1. Use reading comprehension and context clues to discover how the Civil War has impacted Fanny Scott.
2. Discuss the differences between their preconceptions regarding Civil War armies and the actualities revealed in the documents.
3. Use critical thinking, reading, and writing skills to analyze primary sources and determine the story surrounding the Scott family.
4. Understand the implications that the American Civil War had on civilians and the home front.
