NOTE: Links related to a specific unit (regiment, battery, Navy, etc.) are usually listed on the unit's homepage. Links to other States homepages.

The following are of a more general nature, and don't fit within specific topics covered by VermontCivilWar.Org.

Please note that these are not my pages, and I do not regularly check to see if they are still there; if you have problems accessing one or more, please let me know.

Recommendations have come from students and their teachers or parents; thank you all!
