Here are links to Civil War and other history related websites.

This is the link to the new Tampa Bay Civil War Round Table Facebook page.

This blog is run by Kevin Pawlak. Here is Kevin's bio from the Emerging Civil War Blog, to which he is a contributor: 

"Kevin Pawlak is a Historic Site Manager for the Prince William County Historic Preservation Division and a Licensed Battlefield Guide at Antietam National Battlefield. Kevin also sits on the Board of Directors of the Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association and the Save Historic Antietam Foundation. Kevin is the author of Shepherdstown in the Civil War: One Vast Confederate Hospital, published by The History Press in 2015 and the co-author of To Hazard All: A Guide to the Maryland Campaign.

He has also authored “‘The Heaviest Blow Yet Given the Confederacy’: The Emancipation Proclamation Changes the Civil War” in Turning Points of the Civil War, part of Emerging Civil War’s Engaging the Civil War Series with Southern Illinois University Press."

This is an excellent site that publishes short articles on a wide range of Civil War related topics. The contibutors range from historians, professors, published authors, to museum curators.  Listed on the site are dozens of links to other Civil War related blogs, forums, websites,  and numerous other Civil War Round Table websites. (We are on that list thanks to the help of Phill Greenwalt, who has spoken to our group twice.) Which leads to:


Sister site to the Emerging Civil War Blog, Phill Greenwalt is one of the co-founders. The focus here is on the Revolutionary War with many of the features of the Emerging Civil War Blog.

This is the website of the American Battlefield Trust.  This is their mission statement: "The American Battlefield Trust preserves America’s hallowed battlegrounds and educates the public about what happened there and why it matters."

A great way to stay up to date on their preservation efforts and opportunities to support their mission. There is also a wealth of information on the website. Be sure to check out their map collection. Excellent work.  Link to C-SPAN's American History TV which over 250,000 hours of content covering a wide range of American History, including the Civil War.

This is David Powell's website. He has written a three volume history of the Campaign & Battle of Chickamauga which is excellant. He has also written numerous other books on the Civil War. Although he posts only rarely these days (I've heard he is working on a new book), there is still a wealth of information here on Chickamauga.

For those of you interested in geneology, our Vice President, Scott Peeler, suggests these sites to help you in your search:  This site is offering free access to U.S. Census Records through April 15, 2020.            This is the Hillsborough County Public Library Website.
