Outline of the Civil War-- With Links--From Great American History

The outline that follows covers the American Civil War's major political and military events, but it is neither exhaustive--nor finished. We welcome your suggestions as to how to improve this page.

I am now in the process of deleting outdated links and adding new ones. This is a huge task (Sometimes I wonder how I found the time to assemble this outline nine years ago). It's amazing how many websites become outdated in a mere decade. I've updated my email address and welcome any suggestions you have in regards to good links for subjects. Can't say I'll incorporate every one of them, but I appreciate suggestions...

For those educators interested in providing their students a test in which this outline can be used to find answers, go to Civil War Quizzes page.

For those educators interested in our lesson plans on the study of Abraham Lincoln and his speeches/writings (NEW!), go to Lincoln Lesson Plans page.
