National Park Service Launches Civil War Anniversary Website

Scott's "Anaconda Plan"

Winfield Scott’s “Anaconda Plan” to choke off the Confederacy’s economy.

The National Park Service has just launched a website to serve as another important platform commemorating the Civil War Sesquicentennial, and is timed to coincide with the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh.

You may visit the website here: http://www.nps.gov/civilwar

One of the great tools on the new site is a Civil War timeline, replete with links to important events leading up to, during, and post, conflict.

About Gettysburg 150 Concerts

The Battle of Gettysburg and Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address represent two of the most significant milestones in American history. One changed the course of America’s bloodiest conflict – when the fighting ended, the brutal three-day battle left behind more than 51,000 killed, wounded, captured, or missing – the other encapsulated the significance of American democracy and paved the way for reconciliation and healing. Music Celebrations International (MCI) provides unique performance and educational opportunities to performing groups around the globe. MCI is an exclusive licensee with Gettysburg 150. The aim of Gettysburg 150 and MCI is to invite performance ensembles from every corner of the United States to participate in ceremonies marking the anniversary, and to conduct commemorative performances at the battlefield site where so many Americans lost their lives, and where Lincoln’s immortal words became enshrined in history.
