CELEBRATE VERMONT'S CIVIL WAR HISTORY
In 2011, the United States will begin to commemorate the 150th anniversary of
the American Civil War. To learn more about Vermont's role in the Civil War, the
Vermont Humanities Council (VHC), with support from the National Endowment
for the Humanities, has initiated a statewide search for Vermont's Civil War sites:
the public and private places where people mobilized, worked, argued, worried,
and mourned (To view the project's memo click here
The Civil War affected all Vermonters - not only those who went to
war - and home front history can be found in the churches where abolitionists
lectured, the factories that made guns and uniforms, the farms run by women
and children in the absence of men, and the monuments, GAR halls, and
cemeteries throughout the state.

||Finding Civil War Sites.
With undiscovered Civil War sites in every town, Vermonters are invited to
locate them, research their history, and share their stories. You don't need to be
a trained historian to discover Civil War sites, and the VHC has created a free
research kit to help you search. To see an example and to get started on your Civil War
research click here.
||Share your Civil War Research
Share your findings through a brochure or essay, a walking or driving tour, an
exhibit or event or by posting an image to the Landscape Change Program.
