Comments: Ben, I think you need to work alot on your project. I had to make a comments section for you. Also, you need to capitolize at the beginning of sentences and nouns. Also, you need to put more reflections. Also, you need to make a notes page. Thats all

This is a huge improvement since the last time i saw your wiki! Except, like Jackson said you can add more of the basic stuff that Mr.Emmi told us to put on. You also should put more information about the civil war on your page.
I think you need to add a few more sources and information on the your page. The picture is nice to see when you first come onto the wiki but another picture would be nice to. if you just add a few more things and i think you wiki would look awesome!
