Blogging A to Z Challenge: M!

by Paula on April 14, 2012


The ABCs of the American Civil War/Civil War Alphabet

This is part of our Blogging A to Z April ChallengeCheck out our other posts from this year (and some from last year!)

Original source for graphics used above, in case you can’t read the citation: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/documented-rights/exhibit/section2/detail/harriet-tubman.html



NOTE: We intentionally reduced the size of the pages and put our very large and deliberate watermark on these reproductions of Ariel’s project.  Not because we were trying to make any claim to the artistic works—we don’t own the copyright to any of the individual images, just the arrangement Ariel created— but because we do know that many other students create Civil War ABCs every year.  We would hate for anyone to Google “Civil War ABCs,” find our site because of this project, and think that they could use the artwork contained here and credit us.  We don’t deserve that credit!  We just want credit for finding good, reputable sources and doing a little bit of elemental design with Publisher.  We always cite our sources and encourage others to do the same.  The websites cited in this project are great resources, but there are many others.  We hope you find Ariel’s project enlightening and educational.  STUDENTS: Remember, copyright is ownership–there is no such thing as “borrowing” when it comes to a creative endeavor– presenting an idea as your own and without proper citation is THEFT.  Don’t steal.  Create your own project and make proper citations!!  Copying someone else’s words is plagiarism (also known as THEFT) and you can bet that your teacher will know if you’re using your words or someone else’s!  Don’t plagiarize!
