Exclamation Civil War Resources

I've been meaning to do this for a bit, so here it goes.

This thread is dedicated to gathering American Civil War resources. I am going to sticky this thread & anyone can add to it. The goal is to assist people in finding information on the Civil War.

I do have some rules & restrictions I want to place on this thread:

First, I do want people to add links to this thread. These should be Civil War related, though Military History pages that INCLUDE American Civil War stuff will be happily accepted.

Second, I don't want links that link to racist or inappropriate material. Don't link KKK sites or anything like that UNLESS it is some kind of historical tie-in to the Civil War & I will be watching these closely. Also, please don't link Girls Gone Wild or other nonsense like that on here. Any "bad" links will be removed.

Third, please don't simply add to the thread with "What a great idea" or "Sounds great".....if you want to say that, please do so but add a link or something helpful. I would love to see this thread grow to 20 pages worth of links & material, but not with everbody & their grandma simply adding their own little line & moving on. Add pics, links, text, etc. Ultimately, I would love for folks to come to the ACW forum & be wowed at the amount of material we as a community have collected.

4th, PLEASE add explanations for the sites-don’t just post 50 links. I would rather have 10 with explanations that 50 without. These can be very short descriptions so that people KNOW what they are clicking on or going to.

EDIT: If you want to add books you have found, link the book in Amazon or someplace like that so that we can see it. Tell us why you liked it. It does not have to be brand new-if you read Bruce Catton's AoP series for the first time & fall in love, tell us about it.

With that being said, I will start this ball with the first dance:

Here is one that I find helpful. Not only does "H-net dealing with the culture and history of the Civil War." it is a forum of cutting edge thoughts and research in the academic world. And for anyone unfamiliar with H-net, it is an amzing resource center for a plethora of historic topics.

Me/ My School Library

My College Library has a massive section on the civil war (over 50 volumes of Civil War History and 20 some odd of another series) If anyone needs any info I will be willing to look for info for them if I don't have any school work to do.

Also the Soldier and Sailor System:
