Assign each teammate a task in researching, recording, and reporting this information prior to starting.
Visit this American Civil War webpage on women of the era. There you will find pictures of some of the prominent figures of the suffrage movement during the war. Take in the page fully, looking at the pictures and reading the captions below them. Visit the links in the sidebars for valuable information. Get a feel for each woman, her race and her place in society, especially noting how each affected her contribution to the movement and the war.
After your review here, visit the Lakewood Public Library website for a listing of historical women. Each listing contains a biography and links to other websites for each person. On this page, you should definitely be able to make a decision on the three women you will cover.
Start your writing by answering “who, why, where, why, and how." Within each answer remember to be adding special information about each character.
