The Nature of History
Grab your snow shovels, bundle up, and man the ramparts of your impromptu winter quarters for this edition of Nature of History on the influence of Napoleon and Winter Warfare on the American Civil War
In this fall's edition, we examine how soldiers used hunger, hunting, and the plunder of local wildlife as weapons of war.
In this summer's edition, we examine how weather and climate conditions changed the course of the American Civil War.
This season, we're celebrating the history of our nation's majestic symbol – the American Bald Eagle.
The autumn harvest was the source of the celebration, including onions, beans, lettuce, spinach, cabbage, carrots, peas and corn, though possibly in the form of cornmeal or corn porridge.
The “dog days” of summer have arrived, along with all the exciting and unique creatures that historically make their presence known with the elevated temperatures.
Introducing The Nature of History
The American Battlefield Trust has preserved over 50,000 acres of land that include wildlife habitat, soils, streams, trees, flora, and fauna that are part of our ecosystem. In this new quarterly email series, we’ll be highlighting all the natural resources present on and affected by battlefield land preservation. We hope you’ll enjoy the beauty of nature as it exists on our most hallowed ground. Learn more about the environmental benefits of battlefield preservation.
