This assessment asks students to source and corroborate a letter from a Union soldier describing low morale among Union soldiers after the Battle of Fredericksburg. Question 1 asks students to evaluate whether the source provides sufficient evidence to demonstrate the morale of the entire Union Army. To answer this question, students must source the document to determine whether the author represents all Union troops. Question 2 asks students to evaluate whether additional documents would corroborate the letter.
