Well this is my first post of the new year and the first year of the Civil War Sesquicentennial. Its been 150 years since that dark time in America’s history. The war that tore apart the country but eventually made us stronger than ever is now being celebrated at the many different Civil War battlefields all over the country.
There are alot of ways to celebrate the 150th anniversary. Like buying one of the new stamps made to commemorate the sesquicentennial (click Here to see it). Another great way to commemorate the war would be to visit one of the many battlefields that dot the landscape across America. Many of the most significant battles took place in the first year of the war, such as Manassas and the battle at Ball’s Bluff.
