To commemorate the sesquicentennial observances of the American Civil War, the National Park Service has provided information on the legacy of the War: Then and Now. Each date of the War has supporting documents and is compared to the legacy or the activity of today. Other features include a search for soldiers and sailors of the Civil War. Enter your name to see if you had any relatives in the War. Another excellent feature is the Civil War Reporter who will send messages to students via Twitter.
