Although the exact number will never be known, it is estimated that there were over 10,000 military engagements during the Civil War. Most have long since been forgotten, but the places where a number of them were fought have been maintained as historic sites. Here are 106 Civil War battle sites that can be visited. Arranged by state, this reference work provides historical background and visiting information, including descriptions of what you will see and re-enactment dates. In addition to the description, the address and telephone number for each are given, along with admission fees (if any) and policies, hours open and other pertinent information. For each battleground state, there is a brief profile of its role during the Civil War and a timeline of significant battles or other events that took place there.
