Planning for a website and statewide educational and public programs to interpret approximately 100 locations significant to Vermont's participation in the Civil War.

The Vermont Humanities Council (VHC) seeks a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a project in anticipation of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, which begins in 2011, less than five years from now. The Council plans a wide-ranging effort to identify sites throughout the state related to the home front of the Civil War, interpret their history for the public, help heritage tourists locate these sites, and enable educators to make use of these sites in the teaching of history. So far as is known, no state in which major fighting did not occur has ever undertaken such a comprehensive inventory of its Civil War sites. VHC hopes this project will serve as a model for similar efforts in other states.
