From the National Parks Traveler blog:

“Our country is entering year two of the Civil War Sesquicentennial, and many Americans still have a deep interest in the events—and people—connected with that conflict. The National Park Service has launched a new Civil War website that provides a wealth of information and useful tools for both exploring and learning.

“More than a quarter of all national parks preserve Civil War sites or tell stories related to the war. This website offers a single online point of reference for the National Park Service’s Civil War resources and will be an invaluable tool for both students of the Civil War and visitors to our historic sites,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “It also gives the war and events that occurred a century and a half ago meaning to 21st-century Americans.

The new website includes several new features that can be helpful, whether you’re a prospective visitor to a Civil War site, a stay-at-home history buff or even a genealogist.”
