Resources for Families

You are here


One hundred fifty years have passed since the Civil War was fought, but the deeds, sacrifices and legacy of the brave men and women of that era live on. Each of the seven subsequent generations of Americans has kept the story alive through books, oral history and upkeep of the places where Civil War events occurred. Now, it is our turn — and our duty — to teach the next generation about this essential aspect of the American experience.

Experience historic holidays this fall and winter with your family and the Civil War Trust on Facebook Live! Updates and information on Civil War Santa, 1860s trick-or-treating, the first Thanksgivings, and more are coming soon.
