Does the Civil War get taught anymore? Genuine question. And I don't mean the Rockers v the Mods.

My son in learning all about the Civil War in History right now, he is year 8. My husband and I were sitting watching Matinee on Saturday, kicking ourselves for not bringing him as I think he would have loved it. When I booked I thought it might be a bit too heavy for a 12 year old but definitely not the case. He goes to the theatre with us alot s will not make same mistake again in the futre.

Did it in the past? I did History A-level back in Thatcher's Britain and we stopped just before the civil war. Though we didn't do WWII either which one is lead to believe they all spend about 5 years studying now. But I could tell you lots about the Repeal of the Corn Laws which most of my 0-level course was devoted to.

Before 1642, it was never taught in schools.
If, for some strange reason you care what I've seen, it's all here:

If an encyclopaedic knowledge of Jean Plaidy has taught me nothing else, I do at least know that there were three civil wars (perhaps more, depending on you definition) before the seventeenth century. And two of them never get talked about at all.
