Dr. Rolando Avila, in this collection of forty lesson plans, brings the era of the American Civil War in the Rio Grande Valley to life for 4th, 7th, 8th, and 11th grade students. With them they now have an opportunity to understand the significant role the region played in the larger conflict. They also join college-level students at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in U.S. History I (HIST 1301), and thousands of residents and visitors in their discovery of this important and interesting era in American history.
