The Illinois Civil War Sesquicentennial website (www.illinoiscivilwar150.org) is the official website commemorating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War in Illinois. The website seeks to provide an overview of Illinois’ role in the Civil War via a timeline, feature articles, a bibliography, links to existing works on the topic, curriculum materials, research aids, and other information of interest.
Feature articles are aimed at the general public rather than a scholarly audience. Submissions may cover individuals, organizations, events, movements, battles where Illinoisans played a key role, etc. but should have a clear connection to Illinois. Examples include soldiers, regiments, military camps, women’s roles, African Americans, homefront, etc.
