Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial

 Civil War Soldier and Wife

Visit Vermont to experience the American North of the Civil War.

Vermont’s historic sites, museums, re-enactors and educational groups are telling the stories of Vermont in the Civil War. 

The stories are of deeds on the homefront and on  the battlefront: Vermonters who assisted former slaves; men and women who worked in mills and factories supplying the North with needed arms, blankets and clothing; girls and women who volunteered in aid societies; citizens who defended Vermont in the northern-most land action of the war on Vermont soil; and the Vermont regiments who fulfilled the state’s pledge to serve “full duty” and distinguished themselves on multiple battlefronts.

Vermont welcomes you to explore this unique Civil War history.
