This is brilliant. Just in time for the 150th anniversary, Civil War Trust just posted its interactive map of the three days comprising the Battle of Gettysburg. in addition to the fact that it’ s very interesting, it provides great perspective on the location o f each of the major battle sites in relation to the town itself. While I’ve been reading about Gettysburg my whole life, this is the first time I’ve been able to really grasp how one event lead to the next.
In addition, there are other interactive maps for Manassas, Antietam, and many of the other prominent battles of the war. A giant thank you to the CW Trust for these fantastic educational tools!
