About Me

My name is Ken I am the owner and creator of Civil War Academy



The American Civil War is one of the most fascinating events in American history and I have always had a very strong interest in it. In 2007 I decided to create this website to help teach people more about this great American conflict. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in History and have primarily focused my studies on military history.

If you’ve looked at my Family Tree page I talk about my own family and their involvement in the Civil War, and how Fold3 has helped me discover many things about my family history that I never knew existed.

Civil War Academy is made for you, because I think it is important that we all know not only our nations history but also our family history as well. So I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back often!
