Planning a vacation

Does anyone know of a site I can use to plan a trip through the Civil War sites?

Great question. I am a history buff and love learning about this. I have not considered this kind of trip and would like to hear more so I am following this topic.

I do know that on a few of my trips to the east coast that I could travel a few blocks in any direction and find a sign pointing to a battle site. I want to go back when I do not have to work for a living.

The Carolina Road was one of the main north-south roadways during the Civil War. Today, it runs parallel to a 175-mile stretch of road, Route 15, which winds past Civil War superstar sites, such as Gettysburg, Antietam and Manassas. You can also meander through dozens of smaller sites such as Ball's Bluff Regional Park and Battlefield and the Battle of Kettle Run. To help plan your trip, visit Journey Through Hallowed Ground. More than 30 small towns, such as Frederick, VA, Harper's Ferry, WV, and Leesburg, VA, lie along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground route, with histories dating back to the early 1800s.
Does this help?
