Recieved my email today from The Civil War Preservation Trust and wanted to share their exciting new news. Here's what it said:
Whether you're a teacher in search of classroom resources, a dedicated buff looking for book recommendations, or a casual student of history wanting to learn more about a battle or famous general, the Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) is one of the top resources for Civil War enthusiasts.
In a nut shell, CWPT is a 60,000-member non-profit that's dedicated to the preservation of our nation's endangered Civil War sites. And since 1987, CWPT has permanently protected more than 25,000 acres of hallowed ground across the country.
CWPT recently unveiled its newest weapon: a redesigned and expanded website, set to become one of the Internet's greatest resources for Civil War history lovers around the world. The updated site includes a vast collection of interactive and easy-to-navigate battle maps, thought-provoking articles written by top historians from the pages of CWPT's member magazine Hallowed Ground, and lesson plans for educators—written by educators.
I really like their new site, so much more information in one spot.
