If you don't want to use Time Travelers, History Pockets is another alternative for Civil War printables. Because it has a lot less activities, it may be a less overwhelming choice.
The illustrations are very clean and even if you only construct the materials and don't color things in (we don't) - your student will probably learn a lot and end up with a nice portfolio of his/her work.

Milton Hershey
Milton Hershey: Young Chocolatier

I put this here because 1894 is when Milton founded the Hershey Chocolate Company. It covers events previous to that time as well.

A Little Princess
A Little Princess Although fiction, I love this story and have included it here as a literature choice. Sarah’s father is killed during the Boer War – so it fits in this time period and features the “feel” of 1899.
