RICHMOND — The National Park Ser­vice has launched a website, http://www.nps. gov/civilwar, that provides an overview of the Civil War and a guide to more than 1,700 sites around the nation related to the war that divided the nation.

Among those 1,700 sites are more than 100 national parks with Civil War themes. The narrative on the war examines its root causes; biographies of major players, mil­itary and civilian; and places within the national park system that help illuminate the war. Parks included on the site range from Washington and San Juan Island Na­tional Historical Park to the Florida Keys and Fort Jefferson.
