About Us

Since 2007, the House Divided Project at Dickinson College has been creating a wide range of digital resources for K-12 and undergraduate classrooms in order to assist with the teaching of the American Civil War era, especially during the period between 1840 and 1880.  As part of this initiative, we are now developing a series of digital classrooms on major topics, such as this one on emancipation with the goal of making our resources even easier to use in school environments.
