The National Park Service Civil War Commemoration

The National Park Service has established a home page for the commemoration of the Civil War sesquicentennial. If you want a fascinating look at Civil War topics, then and now (like presidential security or fashion or Fort Sumpter), this site is for you.

Warning: the site is as extensive as it is interesting, and once you start exploring it, you may be lost for hours.
