Sites for Civil War Buffs

If you are renting a car and have a little time, there are quite a few Civil War Battle Sites within easy driving distance from Baltimore. The best web pages to find out more are:
  • Civil War Traveler http://www.civilwar-va.com/index.html
  • National Park Service sites including:
    • http://www.nps.gov/frsp/nonnps.htm (Spotsylvania and Fredericksburg in Virginia)
    • http://www.nps.gov/gett/home.htm (Gettysburg in Pennsylvania)
    • http://www.nps.gov/anti/ (Antietam in Maryland)
    • http://www.nps.gov/mana/home.htm (Manassas or Bull Run in Virginia)
See, in particular, this map: http://www.civilwar-va.com/about/maps/VA-MDmapside.pdf (2MB pdf)

Please note that there are now entrance fees for many National Park Service sites.
