The American Civil War Homepage gathers together in one place hypertext links to the most useful identified electronic files about the American Civil War (1861-1865). The page opens a gateway to the Internet's multi-formatted resources about what is arguably the seminal event in American history. Not only was the War the occasion for the abolition of slavery, but by conflict's end the re-United States had emerged as a modern, industrialized power. It is this sense of history, transcending the stale recitation of dates and facts and alive with meaning, to which Lincoln referred when he wrote in 1862, "Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history." The links gathered in this Homepage are a metaphor for the interconnections of the War's past with our present and future. Thus, technology reveals the deep-structure of the human experience and helps to explain the continuing American fascination with the struggle between North and South, free and slave. The page was first launched in February 1995.
