Civil War Sesquicentennial

One hundred fifty years after the American Civil War, we reflect upon the battles, campaigns, and the fallen, while remembering sacrifices endured on the home front. Each of these subjects, coupled with the political, social, and economic events of the period served to define our nation. The date links listed above will take you to pages detailing activities from the respective time periods. As we progress through the sesquicentennial commemoration, additional information will augment this section of our site, so please check back monthly for updates.
