Web Site of the Week: Civil War Studies

More Americans died in the four year conflict that we now know as the American Civil War than in World War I and World War II combined. The brutal melee not only shaped a generation; the battle lines that were drawn in 1861 can be seen to this day in the nation’s social and political
fabric. This site from the Smithsonian Associates offers a host of resources about the American Civil War, including articles, trivia, and online tours. For instance, a recent article traced the history of Civil War naval battles, an understudied but essential component of the military strategies of both the North and the South. In addition, an online tour traces the conspiracy to assassinate President Lincoln. [CNH]
