If you are craving more information about the Civil War, here are some on-line resources to satisfy your appetite for bullets, battlefields and what was happening on the home front.

The Civil War, A Week At A Time

The Civil War, A Week At A Time, done by Longwood College is a Web site having detailed information only in a spoken format, but by clicking on the topic link you can download the audio in a podcast or a written transcript, an excellent example of universal accessibility. The site has fascinating nuggets of information with the archives beginning with October 1860 discussing John Brown’s raid, the immediate and background causes of the war, the secession of the southern states, and more. Each week showcases an event that happened that week.  You may as well bookmark this site as you will be returning frequently to see what interesting tidbits have been posted.
