Inscription.  In 1861 the Civil War began between the North (Union) and the South (Confederacy). The South was determined to create a new country called the Confederate States of America. One of the generals in their army was Brigadier General Stand Watie, from the Cherokee Nation. He was the last Confederate general to surrender to the US Army in 1865. Do you think it would be easy to shoot a cannon? What might make it difficult?
