What would be a good attention getter for this Social Studies speech?

Theres this speech we are doing for Social Studies and its based on the American Civil War. We have to justify the outcome of the American Civil War. (I'm a sophomore by the way) Some things we have to think about are: Whose militia was better prepared for the war? How did the North and South economies affect their readiness to participate in the war efficiently? & Why were both sides convinced they were going to win? How did their motivation play part in their war efforts?

If you have your content well prepared in that your presentation is historically accurate, a good attention getter would be period dressing. In this regard you could dress like a confederate soldier while a colleague could dress as a Union soldier. I wish you all the best in your presentation.

You could study the part of the undertakers in the civil war. The embalming techniques were standardized in the civil war and undertakers set up tents at the edge of the battlefields. The deceased were identified by buttons on their uniforms and letters in their pockets. Another trade was traveling prostitutes as well.
