Sharing your CIvil War Findings

Share your findings through a brochure or essay, a walking or driving tour, or an exhibit or event. The VHC has created walking tour and brochure templates, and sample projects, such as our Civil War walking tour of Burlington. Be sure to use our Civil War Places logo to mark your projects as part of this exciting, statewide effort. Collaborating historian Howard Coffin is working on a guidebook that will profile Civil War sites in every Vermont town. He is available for research workshops, and would like to know about any sites you have found. Additionally if you find any Civil War imagery, such as photographs or drawings, that document the Vermont landscape as it was during the Civil War period it can be submitted to the Landscape Change Program.
