Can you imagine walking the Freedom Trail® or the Black Heritage Trail® and exploring how Boston is connected to the American Civil War? No Civil War battles were fought in Massachusetts. Yet, many citizens helped the cause of freedom and liberty before, during, and after the Civil War.

Our Cardomania booklet will lead you to sites and provide activities that will help you discover Boston's Civil War history. You can also collect Boston National Historical Park's seven Civil War trading cards. Pick up your Cardomania booklet at Faneuil Hall or the Charlestown Navy Yard.
