out these other terrific Civil War
sites, but when you are done, be
sure to hit the "back" arrow at
the top to return here!
If you are a regular visitor
to this site, note that four links have just been added.
The top link above is to a terrific site resulting from the work
of a project of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Departments
of English and History which began with studies of Walt Whitman
and Abraham Lincoln, later evolving into a study of Washington,
D.C. during the Civil War. More recently, much information
relating to the practice of medicine during the Civil War in
Washington, D.C., and the government's process of paying D.C.
slave owners to free their slaves has been added. This is
an ongoing project so come back and visit often as additional
materials are added to the Civil War Washington site. The
second link is to the blog for the Civil War Washington project.
Many states have Civil War Sesquicentennial committees, and
many of those committees have websites devoted to the 150th
anniversary of the War. Two such sites, for Iowa and
Missouri, have been added above. If you are interested,
the Iowa site has a drop down window taking you directly to the
websites of all of the other Sesquicentennial committees' sites.
