In July 2014, when we set out to purchase and restore Robert E. Lee’s headquarters at Gettysburg, the unprecedented scope of the project was immediately apparent.

The Battle of Prairie Grove (December 7, 1862) was largely considered a tactical stalemate, but it succeeded in securing northwest Arkansas for the Union.
Hoping to destroy Brig. Gen. Francis Herron’s and Brig. Gen. James Blunt’s divisions before they joined forces, Confederate Maj. Gen. Thomas C. Hindman placed his large force between the two Union divisions, turning on Herron first and...

Today is National Letter Writing Day. Throughout the Civil War, letter writing was the only way young soldiers could reach their loved ones back home. At Camp Clark before battle, Major Sullivan Ballou penned a letter to his wife Sarah (née Shumway) at home in Rhode Island. Ballou died a week later, at the First Battle of Bull Run. He was 32. Read his poignant letter here: [ Civilwar.org Link ]

Monuments that were erected following the Revolutionary War provide a fascinating narrative on the historical landscape. In this Campaign 1776 In4, Jim Percoco explains the history behind Revolutionary War monuments in America, how they...

"I know not, how men could have fought more desperately, exhibited more coolness, or contested the field with more determined courage,” wrote Lt. Col. George McFarland when describing the conduct of the 151st Pennsylvania as they covered the retreat of the battered Iron Brigade and singularly faced a Confederate onslaught on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
These men, although brave...

These townhomes are on the core terrain upon which soldiers in blue and gray fought to claim Marye’s Heights in December 1862 and May 1863.

The Battle of Cedar Mountain marked the first major clash in Culpeper — and was also its bloodiest. The Battle of Brandy Station, the opening engagement of the Gettysburg Campaign, was the largest cavalry battle ever fought in North America. The same fields later served as the setting for the largest-ever winter encampment of the Union Army of the Potomac.
About 1,400 acres of hallowed ground...

Our team sat down to ask historians which misconceptions about the Civil War drove them crazy. Hear their responses.
At the Battle of Franklin, (Nov 30, 1864) resident Tod Carter was mortally wounded five hundred feet from his boyhood home.
When the Army of Tennessee crossed the Georgia-Tennessee border, the soldiers were heartened by a sign on the side of the road that read “Tennessee, A Grave or A Free Home.” Those words must have had special meaning for Tod Carter, the middle child in the Carter family,...
