I am checking my child's homework. Can you help?
During what years was the Civil War fought? My child's answer is- The Civil War was fought over the span of four years. I really do not think this is the answer the teacher will be looking for. What do you think? I thought the answer might be between 1860-1865!

  1. I think it started in 1861; therefore, 1861-1865.
