The American Civil War Homepage

Photo, Abraham Lincoln, The American Civil War Homepage

An impressive gateway providing hundreds of links to sites relating to the Civil War. The links are arranged into 12 sections: general resources, including music-related sites; the secession crisis and before; images of wartime; biographical information; documentary records, including sites covering both public and personal documents; state and local studies, arranged by state; battles and campaigns; rosters and regimental histories; Civil War reenactors; and Civil War round tables. While the site contains neither a search engine nor annotations, the gateway is easy to navigate and, as it is regularly updated, provides a valuable guide to currently available online resources on Civil War history.
