  1. Battlefield Tours: extensive photography and documentation of Civil War battlefields, and 3-Dimensional battlefield reconstructions.

  2. Troop Movements: 2-Dimensional maps detailing battlefield events, animated sequences of Troop Movement maps, and, soon, 3-Dimensional battlefield troop movement reconstructions.

  3. Personnel: biographical information about Civil War soldiers, civilians, and foreigners, as well as Federal and Confederate military units, supporting the first two themes and placing them in historical perspective.

  4. Chronology: reference information placing the events of the Civil War in chronological order.

  5. Publications: Civil War articles, papers, or books now in the public domain, an extensive bibliography, and comprehensive index of the primary published sources for the Civil War.
