Teacher's Guide - U.S. Civil War - Face Jug Details

This reusable guide covers 1860-1865 and includes such key people as Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and Andrew Johnson. This guide is to be used with the replica of a face jug (EDU 104) from the time of the U.S. Civil War. The making of southern face jugs is a ceramic tradition started by African slaves during the 1840’s. The front of the jug displays a face with oversized features that resemble those found on some African masks. The jugs were made to hold liquid and also as markers for graves. Face jugs and grave markers were used to identify who was buried at the site. The face jugs were also designed to frighten away evil spirits. Face jugs were thought to have begun in South Carolina by African slaves who worked on plantations as potters. These potters would work on face jugs after they finished their work for the day. They were thrown on a potter’s wheel in the harvest jug style.
