Civil War Resources

From the National Park Service
Last April, the National Park Service (NPS) launched its Civil War website, mainly a tool to help visitors plan their trips to historic Civil War sites preserved and administered by the NPS.  However, Civil War buffs will find much more than a trip planner here.  Check out the People section (find an ancestor who served in the Union or Confederate Army) or subscribe to Civil War Reporter, a Twitter feed.

Surfers might also enjoy the National Archives' Discovering the Civil War and podcasts from CivilWar Traveler. You may also search this blog for previous posts about recommended Civil War resources available at the library or search our catalog.
