A wonderful Civil War resource I discovered this week is the "Civil War Preservation Trust" website. They list their mission as being:
The Civil War Preservation Trust is America's largest non-profit organization (501-C3) devoted to the preservation of our nation's endangered Civil War battlefields. The Trust also promotes educational programs and heritage tourism initiatives to inform the public of the war's history and the fundamental conflicts that sparked it.
The Civil War History Center section of the site offers resources such as Civil War overview, biographies, battle of the Civil War, lesson plans, and maps.
On the map page you will find materials from every battle, several animated maps, and links to other Civil War map sites. I particularly liked the animated maps as I am a visual learner.
The Trust also has a listing of blogs, Twitter and Facebook accounts available.
Happy Mappy Monday!
