Enjoy an online tour of Civil War sites from across the country that are overseen by the National Parks Service. Ranger Olivia from James A. Garfield National Historic Site will lead your tour.

She doesn’t just highlight battlefields either. You’ll also visit locations that are important to the history leading up to the Civil War and places tied to people who were important to its history.

Your stops include Natchez National Historic Park, Harriet Tubman National Historic Park, Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historic Park, Kennesaw Mountain National Historic Park, Clara Barton National Historic Site, Antietam National Battlefield, and and Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery.

The first part of the tour takes you from the war’s prologue to 1863. Join us for the second part of the tour, which we’ll host at noon on Wednesday, August 10, at our Main Branch. It will take us from 1863 to the Civil War’s conclusion!
