Military Monday: Civil War website
As part of the Civil War commemoration, the National Park Service has launched a new website. The Civil War brings together many of the Park Service's existing resources on the subject and adds some new ones. From the main page, you can search soldiers in the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Database or plan to visit a battlefield. You can also explore a timeline of the events leading up the war, compare events of one hundred fifty years ago to today, or trace the biographies of civilians who had major roles in the war. It's definitely a step up from your usual textbook.
