University library to note four years of daily Civil War activities

hat was happening in the South 150 years ago on any given date during the Civil War? A website posting just that, every day for four years, is planned by the Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


Civil War history in Arizona – Battle of Picacho Pass

When remembering the Civil War on the 150th Anniversary in 2011, you might not think of Arizona. But Arizona was the site of the Battle of Picacho Peak (also known as the Battle of Picacho Pass).


Civil War anniversary covers Manassas Peace Jubilee

The 1911 Peace Jubilee was attended by thousands, including veterans of both the Union and Confederate forces. Meeting not as foes but as men attempting to eradicate the scars of civil war, aging former soldiers lined up and shook hands in a dramatic gesture of unity.

This remarkable event will be brought to life during the 150th Civil War Commemoration on Thursday, July 21, 2011, at 4:00 p.m.
