Confederate Partisan Ranger Activity : A 27 page paper discussing the guerrilla warfare tactics employed by the Confederacy during the Civil War.

Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg : A 25 page paper discussing some of General Lee’s decisions and the relationships with his generals surrounding the Gettysburg campaign. Robert E. Lee was elevated to near-deity status both during and after the Civil War, but some of his more human qualities have come to light in recent years.
