Civil War Trust 

The Civil War Trust provides free American Civil War curricula for elementary, middle, and high school levels which are aligned to both the National Council for the Social Studies and Common Core standards. Along with the curriculum, the organization’s website - www.civilwar.org - has an extensive collection of historical articles, biographies, interactive battlefield maps, informational videos, and other resources to further enhance the Civil War learning experience. The Civil War Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works toward the preservation of America’s endangered Civil War battlefields, as well as promoting Civil War education and heritage tourism in an effort to inform the public of the war’s significance. Supported by more than 55,000 members, the Civil War Trust has saved more than 36,000 acres of land since 1987.
