Welcome to my website. My name is Craig McMichael and I teach a course on the Civil War and Reconstruction at Detroit Catholic Central High School in Novi, Michigan. This site will provide insight into how I have set up and teach my one semester class. Please feel free to leave comments and ask questions in the areas provided on each page. It is my goal that through discourse with my fellow teachers that we can learn from one another to improve our teaching and our student’s learning. You also can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the homepage, I have included a few pictures from a reenactment I took part in August of 2009 in Jackson Michigan. The above picture is me, Private Craig McMichael. For the reenactment, we recreated the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg).
Johnny Reb lining up to take shot at Billy Yank. Don’t worry I heard them say “it takes a man’s weight in lead to kill a man.”
