Flip through daily "cards" showing important events leading up to and during the deadliest war in American History.
Each "card" shows the date, a succinct description and a zoomable map for the event.
You can flip the "card" over to read the Wikipedia article describing the event.
You can sort your "deck" of events using two mechanisms:
- Sort by day and month for a "this day in history" view.
- Select a start date and then sort by day, month and year for a true chronological sequence of events from that date onwards.
The data for American Civil War Daily comes from the American Civil War Timeline Project at Cannonade.Net. This is a community contributed project to collect time and place data for the war. You can come to the site to browse the timeline or even log in and contribute new data.
The Timeline Project currently indexes over 400 hundred data points with new entries being added daily. If a significant event isn't in the database yet, it soon will be.
