Learn about the Civil War in a series of 4 minute National Park Service videos

The Civil War Trust, part of the National Park Service, has recorded a series of four minute videos about battles, battle fields, battle field preservation, and more.

The centenary of the Civil War triggered or encouraged a exploration and preservation of battle fields. Civil War Scholarship increased along with the study of primary sources and landscapes.

The Sesquicentennial  of the Civil War, which is just ending this year, was another turning point in the study of the war and the preservation of materials.

Both the Civil War Trust and the National Park Service have lots of materials about the Civil War, Battles and Skirmishes, and Military Units and Soldiers, and even Places that were affected by the war. Take some time to explore these valuable online resources.
