If you know me, you know I have a passion for learning about the Civil War and my ancestors’ stories and experiences from the turbulent decade.
Today we have launched a cool new beta project on Fold3.com: Civil War Stories. We have been working with American Battlefield Trust and reaping the benefits of their extensive Civil War knowledge! This first piece includes information on Civil War battles and regiments. The Regiment pages list the battles that the Regiment fought. Ultimately this project will help you find the civil war soldiers in your tree and then discover their stories from the Civil War.
We have been working on this for a long time and I can’t tell you how excited I am that we have the first piece of this live!
