The blogger link up will start on the first Friday of every month and end on the first day of the following month. Each month there will be a new link up. Link up anything that is educational and FREE including GIVEAWAYS!


If there is one topic that I have learned a lot about during our 3 years of homeschooling it is the Civil War. I have learned more about the Civil War in the last 3 years than I ever did in my 12 years of public schooling. We live in GA a state that had a Civil War battle with the second highest death toll at Chickamauga - 34,624 casualties. Gettysburg had the highest with 51,000.

Black History month is in February and it is a great time to note only learn about famous African Americans but also the Civil War.
