Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "The Battle of Bull Run: The End of Illusions" by Ernest B. Furgurson.

In “The Battle of Bull Run: The End of Illusions,” the First Battle of Bull Run is recounted, as well as its role in the disillusionment of the American people in the early stages of the American Civil War.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Death, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?", "How do people face death?", and "How are we changed by war?"
