ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia has launched its official Civil War website as part of the 150th anniversary of the conflict.
The state developed the website -- www.GACivilWar.org – to promote events and activities commemorating the anniversary. The site includes maps of battle sites, museums and historic landmarks in Georgia.
It also includes a timeline of the battles and other events that happened in Georgia from 1861 to 1865.
The site will soon feature Civil War driving trails in the state, a multimedia section for videos and photos and journal entries and letters from Georgians during the war.
