"Brings to Life""You’re going to want to share HistoryAnimated. The site brings to life those dashed and dotted line maps to depict key naval and land battles using graphics, text, sound, and animations."
"One of my favorite US History resources""One of my favorite US History resources.....my students absolutely loved the animations complete with their sound effects and marching visuals."
"Something Different""These animations can be used in many ways from providing students with something different than just reading about a battle to using them as discussion starters on why a battle happened the way it did."
"Surprisingly detailed depiction .... and really well done""this is a surprisingly detailed depiction... and really well done....The site is really professionally done and will appeal to anyone who is new to a particular battle or campaign. The moving animation provides a teaching tool which is more difficult with only text and still maps. "
"Read Several Books and never get the same comprehension""You could read several books and never get the same comprehension of the overall battles as with these animations."
"Start Exploring""Get the children excited. Let them start exploring the Civil War sites before you even hit the road. Check out civilwaranimated.com to preview the battlefields."
