Civil War Sites on the Internet

I have spent several years now roaming around on the Internet looking at the various Civil War Sites, and while there are literally hundreds of them available, most are very specialized. These are the ones I use the most. If yours is not on here and you feel like it would contribute to the folks that want to learn more about the late Rebellion, just drop me a line.   However, do not ask me to display a banner.  You will notice there are none, nor will there be, on my website.

 

 

Abraham Lincoln Research Site Excellent site!  If you have questions on Lincoln, the webmaster of this site is the one to ask.
American Civil War Good "link"  site, and not too large.
American Civil War Site Very Good site and nicely indexed.   Detailed write-ups on several Tennessee battles.

Civil War Battle Summaries Really good site to get a quick look at an overall summary of a battle. I find this site most useful when I am starting to research a particular battle that I am totally unfamiliar with. It gives name, where it took place, when, number of causalities, commanders involved, victor, and a brief summary of the battle itself.
