Civil War Interactive brings you both accounts of the
war itself and news of current events relevant to our
interests. Join us Monday through Friday for news
reports and press releases we gather to save you the
time of hunting them down in our hundreds of sources.
Historic preservation, Civil War reenactments and
commemorations, discoveries of archeologists and
historians, National Park Service news, legislation and
more--you'll find it here. With the Sesquicentennial in
progress there are 150th anniversary events of all sorts
in a wide array of locations, and we'll keep you up to
date. Exhibits, museum and historic-site events, living
history presentations along with word of new books,
movies and other media events, you'll find it here.
