CWRT flagge



These are links to other site of interest to those whose want to know more about the American Civil War.  As more links are added, this page is likely to become quite large.

The Civil War home page is one of the best starting points for information.

The Civil War Official Record is a compilation of the official records of the union and confederate armies.

The Civil War Trust is America's largest non-profit organization (501-C3) devoted to the preservation of our nation's endangered Civil War battlefields. The Trust also promotes educational programs and heritage tourism initiatives to inform the public of the war's history and the fundamental conflicts that sparked it.

The Civil War News is a monthly current events newspaper that emphasizes preservation issues and publishes an extensive calendar, book reviews, letters, news & feature stories, color photos, ads and columns about preservation, images, medicine, round tables, firearms and The Watchdog commentary.

Gordon Kwok was kind enough to list our organization on his listing of CWRTs.  He is a member of the Olde Colony CWRT in Dedham, MA.

Shotgun's Home for the American Civil War is a wonderful site for those who take a rebel stand.

Civil War Sites is another list of links.  As this list grows you will find many of the same links listed here.

Civil War Songs is one of my favorite sites on the internet.  It is small and has broken links, but it is still noteworthy.

The Music of the American Civil War is another, larger, audio site.

Civil War Round Tables on the Web is a state by state listing of other Round Tables.  I hope to have this site listed soon.

The Center for Civil War Photography (CCWP) has asked us to place a link to their site here.

The Just Military Loans website has a page of facts about the Civil War.  This site is posted here because of a teacher in California.  She writes: "My name is Beth Mowry and I'm a history tutor for some lovely students at a library in Northern California.  I hope I'm not a bother, but I just wanted to take the time to send you a quick thank you note on behalf of my students and myself for providing the resources on your webpage.  They just worked hard to complete their Civil War projects, and had found your page to be a great reference in the process, so from all of us - thank you for your help.  As a small token of our appreciation, they thought up the idea of sending along another helpful page that they came across in their research. It has some great resources and information on the Civil War that we thought could be helpful for other students/enthusiasts as well."

Nancy Gardener is a teacher at Mesa Valley School District in Colorado.  Her students have been using our links page.  One of her students brought to her attention how helpful the site has been while learning all about the Civil War!  Danielle, suggested another resource, as a thank you:  "From Cotton to T-Shirts: The Role of Cotton in the Civil War"  Here it is Danielle and thank you for Palm Beach County, Florida.


Here is another request which I am happy to accommodate.  Here is what Jessica wrote: 

My name is Jessica and I am writing to you on behalf of the Laramie Public Library. I'd like to thank you for offering some great info on your page.  I have been referring to it as I gather new materials on American History and the Civil War, and many of the resources on your page have been a huge help!


I'd also like to let you know about this great page of Civil War Resources that one of our local history buffs, Dylan, came across while helping me:  Civil War Resources: From a Solder to a Veteran


It'd be great if you could include this page on your website! Dylan (a high school sophomore) and I have found it to be very informative and we think the people who visit your site will find it to be quite interesting, too!


Recently I was made aware of the Civil War Education Association (CWEA)  It was founded in May, 1994 as a successor organization to another group founded in 1991.  The CWEA’s mission is to enhance the memory and further the understanding of the American Civil War through educational programs for adults and youth.


Libraries continue to be a great educational source for Civil War information.  William Jackson maintains a history resource page called: The Social Studies Resource Center.  His students discovered another site,, that has links that are valuable to anyone doing Civil War weapons research. 


Cindy & Ben Powell suggested that HomeAdvisor of Illinois has a Civil War site.  Strange, but it is true.

While not a Civil War site, Mary Thurwachter has written the first articles about us.  Please reference her site when researching inns at INNsideFlorida

Claudia Moreau along with her grandson Tyler came by an article that discussed Lincoln and his career as a lawyer.

People who have found this site useful continue to write to me.  I will post their help if it does not overwhelm me.  Angela Lee's daughter Rebecca did a school project on the Civil War.  Her paper on Clara Barton can be found here:

Elaine Johnston and her daughter Peyton are studying war time nursing and came across this link: Nurses in Wars.
