James and Sam play the Civil War Weapons game.We are studying the Civil War this week. Today we played a version of the old card game "war," but these cards had names of weapons on them instead of numbers. They are learning which weapons are more or less powerful by looking at a ranking list and determining which wins in a skirmish. For example Sam might put down an Breech-Loading Rifle card and James, a Small Mortar Card. Since the Mortar is more powerful, he would win Sam's card that round.
